Our vision

To place Community Cinema Centres in various other rural areas around KZN to
create a network of centres where critical information can be shared with community
members, as well as creating hubs for learning, skills development and feeding schemes. A
great challenge in rural areas is the ability to share information amongst those who live
there. Our centres, which are fully equipped to play movie tutorials and provide access to
the internet, are a solution to this.

About Us

Shap Shap Cinemas was formed in November of 2015 when the founding members
recognised a need for information and understanding on health topics amongst the Gogo’s
attending our feeding schemes. We decided that we would need to create our own
educational movie tutorials in isiZulu, so that we could share critical information amongst
the rural communities in KwaZulu Natal – isiZulu is the most widely spoken language. By
sharing information in the vernacular of those who attend our cinemas it means that our
audiences are not only watching our movie tutorials, but they are actually understanding
them.
Since our inception we have amassed a library of 25 tutorials on a number of varying topics
from ECD material for crèche children, high school study guides and CV creation, a healthy
cooking show and various health topics such as HIV prevention, Diabetes awareness and
antenatal classes.
We were formally registered as a NPC in May of 2017 and more recently we were also
awarded our NPO status.
