My name is Ronald Omondi. I am 23 years old. I live in Kibera. Things were going good for me. I had a sponsored job that allowed me to also go to school. Then something went wrong with the sponsorship program and I was out on the street again. Selling CDs. In the slum, you can find yourself falling into drugs and hanging out with the idle youth.
A friend told me about the Slum Film Festival at Hot Sun Foundation. I attended a workshop, applied to Kibera Film School and here I am.
Since I joined Hot Sun Foundation, it's like a home to me. I am gaining more talents. The staff is treating us well. We learn in a relaxed and open way.
I really appreciate what supporters are doing for us. You are good Samaritans helping slum youth who don't have the opportunity to gain knowledge in filmmaking.
I appreciate that you are helping youth who live far away from you.
