Adopt a Child

Pebbles Nursery School Primrose, originally hArt Day Centre, is an early childhood development centre that is located at Gabriel Praise Centre. Gabriel Praise Centre started this initiative to cover some of the monthly costs that Pebbles Primrose encounters in the running of the Nursery School.

Currently there are 31 underprivileged children attending Pebbles Nursery School Primrose. Monthly costs are in excess of R600.00 per child which includes the following:

– Trained teachers who provide Early Childhood Development education and Grade 1 preparation skills.
– A balanced breakfast, two snacks and lunch daily.
– Clothing
– A parenting course for the parents / guardians of the children who attend our school.
– Transportation to and from the informal settlement to the school.

To assist us in building into the lives of these children, we have developed an ‘Adopt a Child’ initiative. This initiative gives you the opportunity to change the life of a child by offering a monthly financial contribution towards their expenses. In addition, we also offer you the opportunity to partake in social activities with ‘your child’, such as birthdays at the school, school visits, attendance to their concert and communication via emails/ letters. We have the following contribution options available:

– R600 per month – Full sponsorship for a child of your choice.
– R300 per month – Covers all meals for your sponsored child.


Email  and Zita Ribeiro, the coordinator of this initiative will give you the information needed for you to choose your sponsored child.

Step 2

Decide to pledge R300 or R600 and fill in the appropriate pledge form that will be emailed to you by Zita. You will need to specify if you would like to make the donation for 1, 2 or 3 years.

Step 3

Send through the money each month and you, in return, receive termly reports and information on ‘your’ sponsored child.
