StreetSmart partners keep making a difference to the lives of vulnerable children, R5 at a time!

In addition to the 101 restaurants throughout South Africa where patrons can make a voluntary R5 donation added to their bill, guests at an increasing number of wine tasting rooms, B&B’s, guest houses and hotels are now able to make a contribution.

All funds raised support organisations working with street children within the area where the establishments are located putting the money donated to work where it is needed most in the local community.

Congratulations to GOLD Restaurant (Cape Town), La Mouette (Cape Town), Moyo @ Kirstenbosch (Cape Town), Stacked Diner (Cape Town) and Chatters Bistro (Knysna).

This means:
Your donation does not just make lives better…
It puts a child on the path of re-integration into society and a good future.

Dear StreetSmart Supporter

The end of the South African Tax year (2021/2022) is on the horizon.

Did you know that donating some of your hard earned money to StreetSmart South Africa NPC (a Public Benefit Organisation registered with SARS) before  the emd of February 2022 will allow you to claim a tax deduction on your income tax return?

Your donation will enable us to expand our reach to vulnerable and street children through education, skills training and family reunification programmes. These interventions give opportunities to the children to live viable lives in South African society.

The Plettenberg Bay beneficiaries are Home from Home – Bitou Family Care and Masizame Project. The organisations will use the funds respectively for social work supervision and the salary of a family reunification worker.

“We would like to extend a big Thank You to StreetSmart and the local community for embracing this initiative so generously. We as Bitou Family Care are extremely grateful for the support we receive through our partner organisation, Home from Home. Through StreetSmart’s support we can provide event better service to help stabilise the lives of children in need,” says Elisabeth Wenz, co-founder of Bitou Family Care.

The Knysna beneficiary is Sinethemba, and the funds donated will be utilised towards the salary of the auxiliary social worker. “Because of StreetSmart’s support we can help children who are going onto the streets and get involved with drugs and alcohol, to be reconciled with their parents and teachers. We help them to work through their challenges together through our programmes at Sinethemba. I was helped in this way, and am grateful to be able to give back to the kids in my community,” says Siphamandla Halahala, the social auxiliary worker at Sinethemba.
