SHOW YOU CARE (originally known as GIVE RESPONSIBLY) is a “call to action” developed by the Cape Town Central City Improvement District (CCID) and its Social Development Department in 2008. Since then the initiative has spread to other organisations across Cape Town and beyond, the primary objective being to support the work of those NGOs that offer street people an alternative to life on the streets.

The CCID’s own specific call is to support the six primary NGO partners with which it works closely in the Cape Town CBD, who provide alternatives to begging and life on the streets. These range from rehabilitation services, skills training and education, to the possibility of shelter or even family reintegration. Click here to download SHOW YOU CARE banking details for EFT.
