Margi Biggs(2) WP

Ms Margi Biggs who is the winner of the Good Neighbours Against Crime Award is the founding chairperson of StreetSmart SA, who has achieved remarkable success in helping homeless children of Cape Town not only in aiding beneficiaries that work with them but also by educating the community not to give money to begging children as by doing so it keeps them on the streets.


Receiving the Good Neighbours Against Crime Award Ms Biggs said: “I am most grateful for this recognition of the work we do at StreetSmart.

This allows a platform from which I can explain to the public, that by giving children money when they are begging on the street, they are keeping these vulnerable children on the streets.

While children are living on the street they are susceptible to drifting into a life of crime, of being abused and a life of suffering.

There are many organisations in most towns, from Graaff-Reinet to Bloemfontein and Somerset West, and many others, which exist especially to assist these children."
