Bea Campbell-Cloete (45) is the founder of God’s Butterfly, a non-profit organisation dedicated to empowering women.

Cloete is a rape survivor; lost her first child at age 20; recovered from a cancer scare and a divorce; and is now using the strength she has gained through her tribulations to uplift other women.

“I was determined to walk away from my past experiences and succeed in life,” says Cloete.

For Women’s Day this year the organisation will be hosting a special seminar for women to “rediscover who they are”. The seminar will be held at St Joseph’s B&B, Joseph Avenue, Irene Park, Klerksdorp and will also cover topics such as “Dealing with failure”, and “Leadership and Self Mastery”. Tickets cost R300 and will include breakfast and lunch. The day is a fundraising opportunity for the organisation, which also sells handmade pillows, backpacks, blankets, t-shirts and armbands to raise sorely needed funds.

GOD’S BUTTERFLY ON MANDELA DAY

On Mandela day, God’s Butterfly staff repainted the kennels at SPCA Stilfontein in North West Province. The organisation also aimed to raise funds for one happy couple’s honeymoon.

“Part of our Mandela Day initiative was to sponsor a honeymoon for a couple who wishes to get married but could not afford it. Bella Bride Magazine organised the wedding, and we are doing the honeymoon,” said Cloete.
