Mrs. Basha Taylor, born Swaratlhe-Tlhapane, was born and bred in Lefatlheng, a rural village in Hammanskraal. Being the 3rd child in the family, life wasn't always easy. 

Her passion and love to serve women and children who have been succumbed to poverty and abuse was birthed from her personal experience.

She has since followed her ministry in 2007 when she resigned from a financial institution to reside in Cape Town. She then founded Women and Beyond from her home in Table View. Starting as a prayer group, it developed into a registered non profit organisation. 

At present she is using her profession as a nurse to educate and bring awareness on both health, wellness and social aspects affecting poor communities.

Basha Taylor's vision for the ministry is to build women and children support centers and shelters across the nation.

With the support of her husband and children, her family remains a pillar in her vision to make a change.
