Onwards to 2013... a turning point for all the peoples of Kenya.

Thanks to all our supporters, we kept the programs of Hot Sun Foundation open and active during 2012, including the Kibera Film School and Kibera TV.

In 2012, we trained two groups of youth in filmmaking skills, for a total of 24.  We also had an historic one-month scriptwriting seminar Script Power for all interested, young Kenyan scriptwriters, with a well-known scriptwriter from the USA, Dwayne Johnson-Cochran, co-sponsored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Over 50 short films were produced in 2012 at Hot Sun Foundation by youth in Nairobi - including dramas, documentaries, community reporting - about compelling issues.  Check them out on youtube

The latest short film is a special THANK YOU for Global Giving supporters at

Now is a great time to make a donation to Hot Sun Foundation.

Thanks for all you do! We appreciate your interest and support.

Wishing you, your families, and friends a peaceful and productive 2013

from the staff, trainees, volunteers at Hot Sun Foundation
