The StreetSmart funding has allowed Pebbles to pay a portion of the salary of one After School Club (ASC) training facilitator. This training facilitator does so much more than just the training of the ASC external staff who work in the facilities. She liaises with the farm owners to make sure that the lines of communication are open. This was extremely important during the COVID-19 lockdown and understanding the needs of the community during this time. Marian provided daily support to the external farm staff, community leaders, parents and children in the form of physical academic resources, setting up virtual classrooms, extra lessons and identifying families who needed food parcels.

Covid-19 brought life – and most businesses – to an unprecedented standstill.

Shops shuttered, airlines stalled, and the immediate halt of travel and tourism brought the broader hospitality industry to its knees.

Like veritable beachfront cottages in a tsunami, restaurants have been among the first, most cherished, and hardest hit businesses in the pandemic, and notably we have experienced the loss of many jobs; the ripple effect has affected other businesses connected to the hospitality industry and also organisations who relied heavily on the patronage of restaurant-goers.

One of them is StreetSmart South Africa with whom I have been associated for the last 15 years and for which I have raised funds by riding the Absa Cape Epic in 2017 and 2018 as well as Wines2Whales in 2019.

StreetSmart South Africa raises funds for street children’s education, skills training, and family reunification programmes, in partnership with restaurants, accommodation establishments, and wine tasting centres. Eating and donating at a StreetSmart restaurant is a smart and responsible way to help a street child. #EatOutHelpOut in a StreetSmart restaurant can make a difference.

When he was only six years old, John was abandoned by his father who left him with a friend and never returned. Neither biological parents have been contactable since. When asked about his parents, John says that he doesn’t have any. He is an independent young boy who has bonded well with his foster mother and foster siblings. He is the oldest child in his foster home and takes this responsibility very seriously. He is very protective of the younger children and generous in making sure if he gets a treat, they do too.

John is doing exceptionally well at school and excels on the sports field whether it be running, soccer or tennis. Soccer is his favourite sport but he can play anything. Due to John not having a birth certificate, he has been unable to participate in sport at school.
