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!

the way poster 1

”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.
