Our Mission


Businesses and Influencers partner with The SleepOut Movement to purposely and effectively address the Five Pillars that alleviate homelessness: Shelter, Nutrition, Healthcare, Education, and Community. Participants in The SleepOut Movement Events spend the coldest winter’s night outdoors to raise funds and create awareness of homelessness.

In 2018, we address three of these Pillars: Community, Education and Nutrition.
Primary Beneficiaries are Liliesleaf Farm and Museum and The Qunu Food Security Project.

Curated by social enterprise The Philanthropic Collection (Pty) Ltd, whose mission is Creating Conscious Capital, The SleepOut Movement aims to spearhead innovation in philanthropy.

We’re moving beyond current practices and beliefs, employing business strategies to do good for others.

Our Mission

The SleepOut Movement, under the guidance and vision of The Philanthropic Collection (Pty) Ltd, believes in creating capital with a conscience. The SleepOut Movement’s mission in 2018 will be embodied by its Special Chapter, The Nelson Mandela CEO SleepOut – Liliesleaf Edition.

On Wednesday 11 July 2018, we aim to get 100 company CEOs – each of whom may bring with them four guests from the company or group who have contributed to making SA a better place and who embody Mandela’s inherent leadership qualities – to #RiseToTheChallenge, and spend a winter’s night at the iconic Liliesleaf Farm and Museum in Rivonia, Johannesburg.

To this end, The Nelson Mandela South Africa SleepOut and The Nelson Mandela School SleepOut (both Empowered by Liliesleaf) Events, which encourage all South African citizens and school goers to spend the night outdoors in solidarity, to raise awareness for the most vulnerable in our communities – the homeless.
