Trainees at Kibera Film School Graduation
Twelve more youth from the urban slum of Kibera and their delighted parents and friends celebrated their successful completion of the Foundation in Filmmaking course on 29 January 2011.
Interest is building. More and more urban slum youth want to learn about filmmaking and how to tell their stories to the world. Hot Sun Foundation will open another course in Foundation in Filmmaking in February 2011. We are excited but we face a big challenge. Talented youth like Steve (pictured below), who has been volunteering for months with the Kibera TV program wants to join us. However, he cannot pay any tuition or fees.
Steve and many many other talented youth like him, needs your support. Only USD 135 per month will pay ALL his tuition, fees, materials and lunches. Only $135 per month can change lives, offer new opportunities and provide new stories about the lives of urban slum youth.
The very best support for Steve and talented youth who aspire to be filmmakers would be for supporters to donate USD $135 per month on a recurring basis.
We are looking for 35 people to pay USD 35 per month to become a FRIEND of Hot Sun Foundation. Having 35 Friends would allow us to give scholarships to six youth. Friends of Hot Sun Foundation will receive an annual DVD package of our current films plus a biannual newsletter.
Join the Friends of Hot Sun Foundation TODAY. And tell your family, your friends, your church, and community group to join us! All donations are most welcome and appreciated!
