The main emphasis of the Pebbles Project is education. They enrich the lives of disadvantaged children and families in the Winelands farming communities in the Western Cape. They focus on the entire life of the child and the challenging circumstances in which they live in order to make a significant and lasting difference. Since our inception in 2004, they have impacted the lives of children and their families by providing support and intervention in five key areas: Education, Health, Nutrition, Community and Protection.
The Pebbles Project works through 28 schools and crèches in the area to support the specialised educational needs of disadvantaged children and youth. Many of these promising young learners grow up in particularly challenging environments, which sometimes include the prevalence of fetal alcohol syndrome, domestic violence, and poor diet.
The facilities they have created are bright, colourful, and create a stimulating environment for all of the eager learners, ranging from toddlers to teenagers.
