“Being in the top 5 is something I am extremely proud of. We engage our customers on StreetSmart at every opportunity, and this has resulted in some extremely generous donations from philanthropically minded guests.” says Caroline Bagley, owner of Savoy Cabbage, the top achieving restaurant in 2017.
Every cent of the donations received in StreetSmart establishments goes to organisations that support vulnerable children through education, skills training and family reunification, in order to give them a chance to normalise their lives and to be re-integrated into society.
"Many drops make a river, and that is exactly how the generosity of so many people makes it possible for StreetSmart to literally change lives, R5 at a time, through our support of programmes that work towards normalising the lives of vulnerable children and those living on the streets. So, please become part of the StreetSmart partner network and give responsibly," says Melanie Burke, StreetSmart Chairman.
StreetSmart SA invites more restaurants, accommodation establishments and wine tasting centres to participate and more diners and guests to choose to go to StreetSmart establishments – in this way more children’s lives can be changed.
