Sunshade is a social ministry of Jubilee Community Church, Cape Town, South Africa. It aims to serve the needs of women and pre-school children in a local poor community. After several years of getting to know the ladies, one of the needs that was identified was the need to educate the community about not only the importance of education for their children but also to teach the mothers how to play with and teach their pre-school children at home. Through the amazing generosity of Claremont Rotary Club Sunshade has been able to equip its own classroom for its pre-school programme with great educational toys and games.

The Rotary club also donated funds for Sunshade to provide educases for Moms, Grandmoms and caregivers. This was an idea inspired by a visit to Dr Paul Roux (also a Rotarian) at Groote Schuur hospital. The educase is a case filled with crayons, books, play dough, activities to develop fine motor skills and much more. A workshop was held to show the ladies how to use the contents of the case and how, by playing fun games, they are actually teaching their children vital educational skills. Nearly 30 cases were then given out for the ladies to take home to play with their children!

The workshop and educases were received with great excitement. Sunshade would like to give a very big thank you to Claremont Rotary Club for its very kind and generous donation through which many pre-school children will benefit educationally.
