KHULA Educations works in KwaZulu-Natal to support

about US

KHULA Education has made a deep and lasting commitment to give children from under-served, rural communities in South Africa the opportunity of a quality education from pre-school years through to graduation from high school. We work with both students and teachers, extending their skills and providing teaching tools where necessary.

Founded in 2007, and supported by The David Rattray Foundation, our work has delivered measurable results for pupils, teachers and schools.

Who we are


Experience tells us that education is the primary means of improving the economic opportunities of children and moving families out of poverty.  

Our vision is that all children, regardless of their socio-economic, cultural background or location are able to reach their potential and make a difference to their families and communities.

Our aim is to work with the existing teaching programmes in local government primary and secondary schools and enhance the children's experience of education.  We are passionate about reaching as many children in KwaZulu-Natal as possible and hope to expand the KHULA Linked Schools model further whilst maintaining  the quality of teaching and support that we provide.

Our Footprint

KHULA’s footprint spans the historic battlefields of rural KwaZulu-Natal from Elandskraal, through Rorke’s Drift to Nquthu and Isandlwana encompassing children and youth in some of the most isolated and marginalised areas in South Africa. This is a region of outstanding beauty and dramatic history, but those elements alone are no substitute for education.

Our Results

We believe that measuring our impact is imperative to understanding and improving the success of our programmes. To date we have seen:

  • Despite having limited or no exposure to English when they started pre-school, 80% of KHULA’s pre-school children were fluent in English by the end of two years with us
  • KHULA students consistently rank in the top 20% of the grade when they graduate from KHULA pre-schools to primary school
  • Our primary school teaching support programme saw a year-on-year average increase of 7% in English and Maths scores in 2020 
  • Our senior school teaching support programme saw an improvement in Maths pass rates for all eight classes taught in 2020, against baseline testing
  • In final year Matric testing, our Grade 12 teaching support programme saw 100% pass rates in English for 2020
  • Over the past two years, KHULA’s Life Skills & Job Readiness Programme has influenced the lives of 1,100+ in-school youth
