At the 2013 StreetSmart SA Handover Event, we had the priveledge and joy to share with our supporters and partners the
wonderful news about the funds that were raised during the past year. Funds were raised by collecting R5 donations through participating restaurants in the Western Cape and Gauteng.
As usual our event was fun-filled and Nik Rabinowitz, friend and supporter of StreetSmart got the ball rolling.
Brilliant as usual, he had us in the palm of his hand - in stitches and rolling with laughter!
With gratitude in our hearts, a total of R907 700, was distributed to beneficiaries working with children in need in Cape Town, Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, Swellendam and Johannesburg. All the NGO’s are actively involved with social development and rehabilitation of street children with the ultimate goal of family re-unification.
In Cape Town, StreetSmart funds are supporting the panel beating skills training programme at Learn to Live, socialworker
salaries at Ons Plek and Home from Home: Oceanview & Vrygrond, as well as salaries for aftercare and family reconstruction at the Cape Town Multi Service Centre.
Franschhoek’s StreetSmart beneficiary, The Kusasa Project received funding towards social worker salaries.
The Stellenbosch beneficiary, Home from Home: Kayamandi & Cloetesville received funding towards a social worker salary and family re-unification services.
