The Cape Town city centre sees an ever-increasing number of children on the streets. This is the story of just one 9-year-old boy who lived and begged on these streets. Josh was picked up by police officials during a routine patrol a couple of years back. He was referred to the ACVV Child Protection agency who finally located his biological mother in a local Kensington squatter camp. Sadly, Josh’s mother wanted nothing to do with her son, saying that he was nothing more than a trouble maker and a thief. As a result of this devastating rejection he was placed at The Bridge Shelter in Khayelitsha.

At the tender age of 9, Josh appeared remarkably tough and street-hardened, but in essence, he was a vulnerable boy surviving a shattered childhood. The first period at The Bridge, was tough. Josh bunked school, smoked marijuana and spent a fair amount of time attending children’s court proceedings for shoplifting.


Entry is R250 per player and includes a full afternoon of Bridge with friends and family.
