ABOUT THE FOUNDER
The journey to becoming a filmmaker has been an interesting one for director, writer and producer Rotimi Rainwater. Born in
Banbury, England, and growing up in Orlando, Florida, as a young
man in the Navy at 18, Rotimi left to take care of his cancerstricken mother. After that he wound up spending the next year of
his life homeless. Following 20 years of working his way up in the
entertainment industry, he is now a creator of film and television
projects that inspire and push for change.
Life on the streets isn’t what people think it is, and neither are the people you meet on the streets. Kids on the street can be very caring and supportive of each other. They have a camaraderie that comes from being on the streets. Because every child who’s on the street are there because at some point they were hurt, pushed away, or neglected. They’re the forgotten children, and they know that.
