At KHULA, we recognise the importance of those early years of learning and how they will shape a child’s school career and beyond. With emphasis on intellectual, physical and emotional development, KHULA works with each child individually to ensure they have the very best start which, in turn, shows in the consistently excellent results that our learners achieve year on year.
The number of children attending our pre-schools has grown by 30%, expanding from just 87 children in 2019 to 157 children in 2020. This is validation that our pre-schools are the popular choice with parents.
KHULA works across two school clusters around the historic battlefields of Rorke’s Drift and Isandlwana. Our team of educators work intensively with seven local schools to support improvements in Maths and English education outcomes, and support a further thirteen schools with targeted interventions such as access to the internet and Maths and English study packs.
KHULA has a commitment to all children beyond their school years. We help youth shape their future in their last years of secondary school by running subject choice and study skills workshops. Our life skills and career guidance workshops help final year students apply for tertiary study and better prepare for life after school.
KHULA collaborates with a variety of stakeholders to enable access to career advice from inspirational people and the possibility of internships and work placements opportunities. With an 80% unemployment rate in our communities, KHULA’s interventions are vital in helping local youth secure a brighter future for themselves and their families.
KHULA Education knows that the best teachers are the ones who have a team around them, so we integrate individual mentoring of educators into our in-school teaching programme and offer group workshops to ensure that the 200 educators in our network know they have the support they need to perform one the hardest, but most rewarding jobs in the world. Our goal is to build a community of dedicated and professional educators.
