About Us

The Butterfly Art Project (BAP) is a registered Non-Profit, Public Benefit (Section 18A) Organisation that is also verified BBBEE Level 1. We support people’s healing, especially children’s, from trauma through art, and helping to build communities of healed people, with resilience, stability and creativity, who fulfil their potential, while creating spaces for others to do the same.

Children in under-resourced communities experience higher levels of stress and are at higher risk of experiencing trauma and require help in learning how to process stress and heal.


We train and support Community Art Facilitators (CAFs) to provide art therapeutic classes to children in under-resourced communities in the Western Cape, Gauteng, Northern Cape and KwaZulu Natal Provinces.
