Franschhoek Wine Valley


StreetSmart is a conduit fundraising system operating in a number of countries. StreetSmart SA was founded in 2005 by Margi Biggs and a dedicated Board of Directors. Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was invited to become patron.

StreetSmart is a very simple system. Patrons at participating restaurants are asked if they would like to support the charity by contributing R5 extra to their table’s bill. They can donate more if they wish or none at all. The proceeds from participating Franschhoek restaurants are used to employ a fulltime social worker who focuses on particular needs of street children and other vulnerable youth in the valley.

The following Franschhoek restaurants support StreetSmart:

  • Bread & Wine
  • Fyndraai @ Solms-Delta
  • Haute Cabrière
  • Le Bon Vivant
  • Le Quartier Français
  • Monneaux @ Franschhoek Country House
  • The Grill Room
  • Reuben’s
  • The French Connection Bistro

Look out for the StreetSmart logo whenever you go out for a meal.
