Lola Kenya Screen Appeals for Support

We, being a non-profit, non-aligned and non-sectarian organisation operating on humanist principles, rely on support from society to conduct our weekly school outreach, fortnightly mobile cinema, monthly film forum, quarterly internship and annual festival programmes.

Rather than close down, we are turning to the beneficiaries of our services to contribute towards meeting the cost of service delivery.

The introduced ‘service charge’ will cover just 10%-20% of the cost of the service sought as our services must remain within the reach of every eligible child and youth in eastern Africa.
