A whopping R1,120,000 was raised nationally in 2017, through the #EatOutHelpOut campaign, run by each of the StreetSmart establishments! A simple goodwill gesture of adding R5 to the bill, generates bountiful rewards towards the upliftment of street children and children at risk.
The Top 10 restaurants have collectively raised a grand total of R513 345.00 – to commemorate the occasion, StreetSmart celebrated in style at Savoy Cabbage restaurant!
“We are grateful to ALL our partners for their hard work and dedication in effectively running the initiative within their establishments. Your success is our success.”

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.
“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.

“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.
