AFRICALIA VISITS KIBERA FILM SCHOOL
Kibera film school trainees had a chance to finally meet their main sponsors Africalia which was represented by Sven the financial administrator and Wim who is in charge of public relations,marketing and fundraising in Africalia. Both parties got a chance to express their views and ideas and their expectations for the school.
The trainees also got a chance to showcase some of the short films which they worked on.The officials from Africalia were very impressed to see the progress the school was making and encouraged them to keep up the good work.
Sven also encouraged the students to use this opportunity to tell their stories because film is a very powerful medium and like the saying goes seeing is believing and images speak for themselves.
"It is very satisfying to see that the money we fundraise is put to good use and one thing we should all realize is we both need each other,"said Wim.
Wim got a chance to make a detour of the Kibera slum courtesy of the trainees who were bent to show him around.
