Khulisa has adopted a systemic approach to community development. Khulisa has developed an approach which aims to address the challenges faced by communities in a holistic and comprehensive manner. It aims to identify the systemic challenges in the society and community, and to overcome fragmentation of policy, systems and delivery through the mobilisation of local capacity. Khulisa works collaboratively with multiple stakeholders to identify key projects which would have the highest impact in the system and which would demonstrate social change.
