The Flying Kites Oasis program (flyingkitesglobal.org/oasis) seeks to build the capacity of orphanages in developing countries by sharing a proven model of business operation.
In August 2011, the program will be hosting the first Oasis Festival in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya. 16 childrens homes will each prepare a piece of music or dance that will be an expression of their identity. On Festival day they will perform their piece, sharing the stage with top Kenyan and US talent, unequivocally demonstrating that in unity there is strength.
Flying Kites, in partnership with Goodmakers Films (goodmakers.org) and Kibera's own Hot Sun Foundation (hotsunfoundation.org), will be filming this incredible event and the preparations leading up to it. The resulting documentary will be used to raise awareness of the Flying Kites mission as well as the funds necessary to allow the program to expand.
