StreetSmart South Africa is a community initiative that raises funds for programmes that support the greater process of social normalisation of street children, in partnership with restaurants.
Participating restaurants display a StreetSmart card on the table informing patrons that a voluntary R5.00 donation will be added to their bill. They will have the option to give more than R5.00 (or not give at all). This donation is registered separately in the restaurant till and StreetSmart collects the funds. Diners should see their donation reflected on their restaurant bill.
Every cent raised in StreetSmart restaurants goes to vulnerable and marginalised children
programmes. People supporting StreetSmart restaurants will be consciously contributing to the betterment of street children. StreetSmart provides diners an opportunity to give responsibly and not in the hands of child on the street, as this keeps them on the street.
All operational costs are covered through sponsor partnerships, fundraisers and private donations.
StreetSmart South Africa is registered as a Non-Profit Company, a Public Benefit Organisation and a Non-Profit Organisation.
