Greetings everyone! My name is Josphat Keya (24) from Kibera Nairobi-Kenya. I have just received a scholarship to go attend a film fellowship at the Ghetto Film School in the Bronx USA for two months (July-August 2011). I am a trained filmmaker at Kibera Film School. For the first time in my life I will travel outside the African continent. I will represent the youth of Kibera, our hopes, our talents, and our possibilities. No youth in Kibera has ever achieved such an honour. I am humbled and proud at the same time.
But there is a limitation and a challenge to this honour. My family and community have no funds to pay for me to stay in New York. I am sharing this video with you to hear my story, and also see how my community has reacted to this. You can join my community of supporter’s at globalgiving.org/3632
Your donations will make it possible for me to accept the Ghetto Film School film fellowship program and return to Kibera to inspire and train other slum youth.
Thank You, Asante Sana.
