Give Dignity initiative City of Cape Town


Give Dignity

​​​​​​​​​​About the Give Dignity initiative​​​​​​​

The City of Cape Town is running an initiative to raise awareness around the plight of people living on the street. The initiative emphasises the importance of giving those in need a hand up rather than a handout. Instead of a cash handout, which often increases the risk of prolongued homelessness, we encourage you to make a donation.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made life challenging for everyone, and our most vulnerable residents have been the hardest hit. If you are in a position to make a difference in someone's life, then please consider donating, Your contribution will go to an NGO working in the community that has been vetted by the City. That way, you can trust that your donation will go to a worthy cause.

Your donation can help someone meet their basic needs, including:

  • Breakfast or a hot meal
  • A night in a warm bed
  • A mask or hand sanitiser

In the right hands, your donation goes further.


Making a donation to a worthy cause is as simple as scanning the SnapScan QR code below with your cell phone.

A Caring City: We run a safe space for street people under the Culemborg bridge in the foreshore. The Culemborg Safe Space is a transitional shelter where people are able to spend the night, access ablution facilities and securely store their belongings. They can also access a number of additional services to help them reintegrate into society. 

Alternatively, there are a number of shelters run by NGOs that offer assistance. The Western Cape Government keeps a database of registered homeless shelters.

Find out more about how you can get involved and make a difference.

Ignisive facilitate SPARK

14 April 2022 – Today Ignisive facilitated two key modules in our Employability Skills/Empowerment (SPARK ©) Programme… with critical learning outcomes about perseverance and making positive, responsible choices…even when life throws the hardest knocks.

Life can be brutal sometimes…and unfair…(we cannot always control this)…however developing skills to respond effectively (manage our reactions/choices) is the only control we have…(thereby) not allowing our circumstances to define us or hold us back from possibilities and becoming the best version of ourselves.

What a valuable learning experience…as we learnt more from each other…than any book of theory can teach.

In fact we challenge anyone open to expanding their paradigms to spend time with a person who has hit rock bottom and continues to persevere …and serve others…regardless.
Our team of Community Stewards have been a beacon of light as we navigate our way through many hurdles, in helping people commit and move away from life on the streets.

We have seen firsthand what is possible when someone is given more than just hope, but a sense of responsibility, dignity and opportunity to shape their own destiny.
Thank you to @cityofct Clifton Scouts Hall for the support with a venue.

Thank you @picknpay Camps Bay for the refreshments, especially the delicious donuts. 🍩Thank you @khulisasa @streetscapes_urban_farms for the collaborative and administrative support to help make delivery of these types of skills programmes possible.

“The smallest spark ignites the fire that lies deep inside you…and suddenly everything is possible.”
