Kibera Film School,


Supporters like you on Global Giving.

Comment by Joash Mageto, filmmaker

In six months, Kibera Film School transformed me into a new person. Today I am confident enough to make a movie of my own. I see a film with a director’s eye now. I have started loving cinema in a true sense only after coming here.


Remember us during the holiday season.

Your support makes it possible for us to become filmmakers!
