of our society
Street Sleeper was a Cape Town based initiative that used innovation to tackle the social and environmental challenges facing the homeless community.We upcycled advertising billboards destined for landfill into survival sleeping bags, transforming the negative impact of waste into immediate relief for those living on the street while promoting social upliftment through dialogue and storytelling.
After 5 incredibly rewarding but also challenging winters, we made the difficult decision to close our doors. Thank you for all the support you have shown us, and in turn Cape Town’s homeless community, over the years. Ours has always been a grassroots organisation, kept afloat by the “little” guys rather than big corporate entities. It’s thanks to your continued generosity and genuine interest that we were able to keep our operation going.
