“Education, skills training and family reunification of street children are the major objectives of StreetSmart and our committee in Pretoria believe that our local community can benefit immensely from this project. We as volunteers and restaurateurs can join hands and make a difference” said Hettie de Wet, chairman of the Pretoria Committee of StreetSmartSA at the launch at Ritrovo Ristorante in Waterkloof Heights.

”THE WAY is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends and the challenges we face while navigating this ever-changing and complicated world.

Martin Sheen plays Tom, an irascible American doctor who comes to France to deal with the tragic loss of his son (played by Emilio Estevez). Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage “The Way of St. James” to honor his son’s desire to finish the journey.

What Tom doesn’t plan on is the profound impact this trip will have on him.

Through unexpected and oftentimes amusing experiences along “The Way,” Tom discovers the difference between “the life we live and the life we choose.””

StreetSmart SA, has launched in Johannesburg and is rallying restaurants to become involved in helping to rebuild the lives of children at risk in the city.

“Most of the street children in South Africa end up on our streets as a result of poverty. We can’t change the socio-economic issues related to poverty, but a R5 donation to StreetSmart every time we eat in a restaurant can change the life of a child,” said Joanne Evans, Johannesburg business woman and chairman of the Johannesburg Committee of StreetSmartSA at the launch at the Saxon Hotel in Sandton.

"The joy. The usefulness. The sense of accomplishment. Being part of a solution. The no-fuss StreetSmart method. Is there an easier or better way of making a tangible difference? I cannot wait to see the change we will bring to Swellendam as a direct result of this programme," said Henk Klijn, owner of Augusta de Mist Country House and chairman of the StreetSmart Swellendam steering committee, at the launch event in Swellendam.
