The Pebbles Project is an independent project designed to reach and care for the children of vineyard workers in the Western Cape of South Africa.
The project is organized with a five-fold concern: Education, Health, Safety, Nutrition, and Community. The Education effort takes the form of tutoring in most of the Pebbles locales, however, the Hemel-en-Aarde Education Project (HEAEP) – Hermanus (aka Pebbles Academy) provides a traditional classroom education for children from the wineries in the area. In addition to classes for grades K-7, childcare for children from 18 months to kindergarten age is provided. The school has plans for adult education for skills development as well.
The Pebbles Project provides a wide latitude of opportunities for ABWE missionary participation. Contributions to the Pebbles Project will help to sustain the ministry of the Academy and underwrite the expansion projects.
