The Hot Sun Foundation
Social transformation through media and art is the vision of the Hot Sun Foundation. Their mission is to educate, develop talents, and train youth and children from the slums so that they can tell their own stories. We want their stories to travel far to inspire other slum dwellers around the globe. We want to create role models and leaders. We believe that media and art can enable slum dwellers to reshape their lives and bring about social transformation.
is the story of Kamau, an artist, Otieno, a hustler, and Alice, a preacher's daughter, whom both Kamau and Otieno fall in love with. All three live in Kibera, east Africa's largest slum, home to a million people in Nairobi, Kenya. All three are from different tribes but are searching for tribal unity. During the 2007 Kenya presidential elections their community is torn apart by violence and conflicting tribal loyalties. Their story, set against a backdrop of tyranny, is a beacon of hope in an unjust world.
