Young Kenyan ask for support for start up his dream – Photography business
I was brought from street in to Tunza childhome in kibera slums when I was x years old. That is where I had my first experience with a camera from volunteers who visited the childhome and the passion grew big. I have been raised by friends since the children home was shut down 2016. Family Viberg and Begeron have being helping me since i was a young kid to a graduate from one of the best university in kenya. They have being taking care of my upkeeps and bills to medication and school fees. I have graduated from university with bachelor degree in purchase and supply chain. Sadly it´s very difficult to get a job here in Kenya, even if you have a university degree. 95% of educated graduates students in Kenya are unemployed. So you must be creative to be able to survive or you will be heading for homelessness and street life, which I don’t want to go back to. At the moment I have applied for more than 370 jobs all in vain which means in Kenya it matters “what do you have (braibes) or who do you know (connections)”. While in university I was able to start doing photography using friends cameras as side project. I loved it! When I was graduating I was given a camera of my own from Canada, then without knowing the camera might be the future for me. NOW I AM RAISING these funds to be able to follow my passion and start my own film and photography studio in Gilgil Nakuru county. That will upkeep both to me and others who are going to join by studying photography from me. I really need your support to able to reach the goal.
OPERATION OF MY PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO
My Photography studio will not only be a photography thing. I will also do more to promote art in the community, for example videography, offer framing services and do printing services all in one. In promoting the art culture we will train youths who are interested in photography and videography to learn more. Hence create employment in the community. We are going to provide skills to the community and show them they can build something out of their talents and creativity in film and photography.
