Greetings from Hot Sun Foundation!

My name is Anne Mwaniki.  I am the financial manager for Hot Sun Foundation.

I have worked at Hot Sun Foundation since 2008. I have seen the lives of many youth transformed by learning filmmaking at Kibera Film School.  Most of our graduates are working in the Kenya film industry. 

I know we do a great job in providing training for youth to tell their own stories on Kibera TV.

We need your help.  Donations from people like you keep this creative, life changing work going.

We want to tell you about a special opportunity for you on Wednesday March 13 beginning at 9 am Eastern Daylight Time (USA).
