StreetSmart is hosting an incredible raffle to help raise much-needed funds and the big ticket prize is a pair of 18-carat gold and diamond earrings.


Cape Town, South Africa (13 April 2023) – StreetSmart has been making a difference in the lives of children across the Western Cape. The organisation funds projects that benefit children, keeping them off the streets, fed and educated.

In the current funding climate, the non-profit has faced a few challenges. Not willing to give up, the team have been blessed with a pair of 18-carat gold and diamond earrings with which to help raise much-needed funds. StreetSmart SA’s Circle of Diamonds, is a not-to-be-missed online raffle to raise funds to help the country’s most vulnerable children especially those living on the streets.

“You can share your own brilliant sparkle by helping us uplift our ‘diamonds in the rough’ because every child is precious,” says StreetSmart SA Chairman Zaid Adams.

By buying a raffle ticket for R250, a beautifully crafted pair of Dancing Diamond studs valued at R25,000, kindly donated by The Diamond Works, could be yours. The 18-karat yellow gold set with 0.04-carat floating white diamonds is one of 10 sought-after prizes up for grabs to spoil yourself or a loved one.

These prizes include accommodation at The Table Bay Hotel; handmade designer shoes; Winelands Guide guided wine estate walking tour; Agulhas Wine Triangle wines; Glen Carlou Restaurant dining voucher; exciting activity vouchers and Carmién Tea Gift sets. All the prizes have been generously donated by friends of StreetSmart SA.

Raffle tickets can be bought via the StreetSmart website All proceeds will go to StreetSmart SA in support of their ongoing fundraising efforts towards normalising the lives of children in need through education, skills training and family reunification programmes.

Who is StreetSmart?

StreetSmart SA was set up in 2005 by a group of concerned Capetonians under the patronage of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and comprises resourceful board members representing business, and the hospitality and tourism industries. Similar StreetSmart organisations also run independently in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and The Netherlands.

StreetSmart SA is registered as a Public Benefit Organisation as well as a Non-profit Organisation and ensures that every cent donated by guests goes towards social and educational upliftment projects for street children. 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, sleep, taste and enjoy is the responsible way to help a street child.
