Established in 2008 by Laurence Graff, The FACET Foundation makes grants to charitable projects in Sub-Saharan Africa within the fields of education and training, health, the relief of poverty and community development, focusing on charities which provide long-term, sustainable and comprehensive solutions for those in need. FACET’s latest partnership is with the Pebbles Project, a South African-based charity created to provide support to the vulnerable children of the Winelands. FACET aims to provide a crucial resource for the Pebbles Project through the development of a Graff Leadership Centre that will be built in the Stellenbosch Winelands. The Centre will support Pebbles in their mission to better the lives of children from disadvantaged backgrounds with special educational needs, through providing support and training to local children and establishing after-school provision for older children living in the Winelands. It is reported that a staggering 12% of children in the area suffer from Foetal Alcohol Syndrome.
