What we are doing

HOT SUN FOUNDATION (registered as a charitable trust in Nairobi, Kenya) is the only organization located in Kibera, east Africa’s largest slum, that focuses on social transformation through art and media. Over a million people, mostly children and youth live in Kibera, located in Nairobi, Kenya.

Hot Sun Foundation has three programs in Nairobi:
1. The Kibera Film School, where urban youth learn filmmaking. You can support their work and buy their films at the STORE on this website
2. Kibera TV: citizen journalism by youth living in urban slums in Nairobi 3. Hot Sun Productions: video footage and services available for individuals, families, community groups and small businesses

HOT SUN FOUNDATION started the KIBERA FILM SCHOOL in August 2009. At the KIBERA FILM SCHOOL, youth from Kibera learn scriptwriting, acting, camerawork, design, social networking, editing, production, and distribution. Professionals from the film and TV industry in Kenya are sharing their experience and skills with Kibera youth. Youth who had never even seen a camera up close are becoming accomplished filmmakers.
