moyo is a celebration of commitment to the beauty of Africa and her people, inspired by the traditions and values of our ancestors. moyo’s famously warm hospitality and modern African ambiance makes it the ultimate destination for a unique African experience.
In May 2017 moyo partnered with StreetSmart South Africa as part of the organisations’ initiative to raise funds for street children projects through participating restaurants and has since donated more than R90 000 to local StreetSmart charities. StreetSmart was started in 2005 under the founding patronage of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu. The funds raised go to selected and approved organisations that run programs for the normalisation of street and vulnerable children’s lives. moyo creates awareness with a StreetSmart menu insert at all moyo restaurants, informing customers that a voluntary R5 can automatically be added to the table’s bill. Should the patrons wish to contribute more or none at all they should simply inform their waiter. StreetSmart operational costs are sponsored so every cent donated at restaurants goes to the beneficiaries.
The StreetSmart organisation’s message is to encourage the public not to give money to street children as this enables them to carry on living on the streets. In essence, eating at a StreetSmart restaurant and contributing is the “smart” way to help a street child.
“We took a long time to find a partner that had both a national footprint and a benefit to local organisations. The fact that 100% of the proceeds go to the relevant charities is what won us over. We are looking forward to a long and substantial partnership with StreetSmart,” says Innes Linder, moyo National Marketing Manager.
