Name: Francis Gikufu

Country/Region: Kenya/Nairobi

Growing up in the Mukuru Slums, I know how difficult it is for children to break the cycle of poverty and drug abuse. Like many, I struggled to be educated, not only due to lack of funding. Most have no mentors who could bridge the gap between the slum and the world. Through Mukuru Angaza Film Academy, I want to be a mentor for children like me.
