Hi, my name is Tyler Batson. I’m 24-years-old and an art student living in Los Angeles. Last year I made a volunteering trip to Kenya in that opened my eyes to a view of Africa I’d never seen in the media. Now, 8 months following Kenya’s post-election violence, I have committed myself to filming a documentary film in Kenya called “A Chance for Peace.” where I hope to share what I experience – a warm, resilient, kind people proud of their heritage and tied deeply to their community.
I’m not exactly sure what will happen. I’ve never done this before. The aim is to educate people on the recent post-election violence, its impact on Kenyans, and the peace processes we never hear about.
I have been fundraising with the help of friends and family and I’m as ready as I can be to take on what is truly the most challenging experience of my life.
Stay tuned to find out what happens in Kenya during our production of A CHANCE FOR PEACE!
