Khula Development Group is a registered non-profit organisation (NPO) with the mission to reintegrate primary school children in disadvantaged communities, at risk of dropping out, back into the school system. Khula is active in 22 schools in 5 areas in and around Paarl and Stellenbosch.
In South Africa, in every 12-year cycle, more than 600 000 children drop out of school. The importance of regular school attendance and education are often not recognized. Due to many different social factors and the manifestation of poverty it is easy for children to start a cycle of school absenteeism.
