Women of Purity was established in 2020. During the height of the pandemic, Mrs Smangele Gumede finally decided to heed the call to establish a space that would be sacred, safe and family centered to support women in their journeys to heal and be their best selves.
Mrs Gumede is a wife, a mother, a sister, a grandmother and mostly a daughter of The Most High God. She is a resigned nurse and a business woman. She then decided to extend her hands to work hand in hand with other women in order for her vision to be established, hence the Ethiopian Proverb that says: "When spiders unite, they can tie down a lion"
