STREETSMART SOUTH AFRICA RAISES FUNDS

FOR STREET CHILDREN PROJECTS

THROUGH PARTICIPATING RESTAURANTS

StreetSmart South Africa has been in operation since June

2005 under the founding patronage of Emeritus Archbishop

Desmond Tutu. The funds raised go to selected and approved

organisations that run programmes for the normalisation of

street and vulnerable children's lives. The restaurants in each

town raise funds for their own community street children

programmes.

StreetSmart Cape Town has selected the following beneficiaries

for 2017: Cape Town Multi Service Centre, Home from Home,

Learn to Live (Masiphumulele, Ocean View and Westlake), Ons

Plek, TLC Outreach Projects and School of Hope.

The selected beneficiary for StreetSmart Franschhoek is

The Kusasa Project; for StreetSmart Stellenbosch is Home

from Home (Cloetesville and Kayamandi); for StreetSmart

Swellendam, the Swellendam Beursfonds; for StreetSmart

Johannesburg, the Kids Haven Project; for StreetSmart Pretoria

is PEN-Streetwise; for StreetSmart Plettenberg Bay is Masizame

and for StreetSmart Knysna, Sinethemba.

StreetSmart gives diners the opportunity to give responsibly.

 

The beauty of StreetSmart is its simplicity. In a StreetSmart

restaurant a small, elegant card on the table informs patrons that

a voluntary R5 will be automatically added to the table's bill.

If diners would like to add more - or none at all, they just need

to inform their waiter.

 

Every cent of the funds raised through restaurants goes to the

beneficiaries. All of the operational cost of StreetSmart are

sponsored.

A few important points to note

regarding street children:

 

Do NOT give them gifts or money - 

in the long run this keeps them on the streets.

 

Greet them in a friendly manner.

 

Rather give money to initiatives that deal with the problem, i.e. StreetSmart.
