StreetSmart continues with helping street children rebuild their lives through donations from our restaurants, accommodation establishments and wine tasting venue partners in the Western Cape, Garden Route, Gauteng and KZN. This grand effort is part of the total StreetSmart allocation of R1,7 million distributed nationally for 2019 to organisations working with children at risk.

“Not only does it allow our guests to make a donation responsibly and in a safe environment if they choose to do so, but it allows us to contribute responsibly as a business,” says Mari Vigar, co-owner of La Mouette and Upper Bloem restaurants, which have generously matched the donations they receive from diners, effectively doubling their contribution.

“Through the generosity of our fundraising partners and other supporters we are able to continue to expand our national footprint. For the fifth consecutive year, StreetSmart will be disbursing over R1 million to beneficiaries nationally, enabling us to support 35 programmes. We are so excited to be able to continue this work through responsible giving via StreetSmart and we extend an invitation to restaurants, accommodation establishments and wine tasting venues to become StreetSmart in their local areas,” says Melanie Burke, Chairman of StreetSmart SA.

StreetSmart’s goal is to be part of the process of social normalisation and to encourage the public not to give money into the hands of a child as this keeps them on the streets. In essence, donating to StreetSmart where you eat, drink and sleep is the responsible way to help a street child.
