The Pebbles Project
The Pebbles Project aims to enrich the lives of children from disadvantaged backgrounds with special educational needs. In particular, those whose lives are affected by alcohol, through providing support and training to local wine farm and township créches and establishing after-school provision for older children living in the Winelands.
Pebbles is currently impacting on the lives of over 780 children. Their work supports children, teenagers, parents and wider communities in the Somerset West, Stellenbosch, Wellington and Paarl areas of the Western Cape.  

The organisation’s AGM took place on 4 September at Warwick Wines where Pebbles Project Director, Sophia Warner took the opportunity to say farewell to some long standing members who have seen the organisation grow from strength to strength since its inception in 2004. Two new trustees were welcomed, being Zanele Njapha from Brand House and Matome Mbatha from WOSA, adding further credibility to the cause in helping the less privileged.

After a tough year in 2011/2012 Pebbles had a much better financial year in 2012/2013 seeing their income increase considerably, enabling the organisation to increase their number of beneficiaries and staff. During the 2012/2013 financial year Pebbles impacted the lives of 702 children ranging from the ages of 0 – 18 years as well as their parents, families and communities through the five pillars of their work, being Education, Health, Environment, Nutrition and Protection.

‘We are forever grateful to the time, effort and financial support of our trustees and donors, who without you the Pebbles Project wouldn’t exist. As one of our trustees put in his resignation letter, “Forever a Pebble”,’ comments Sophia Warner.
