Research Jobs in South Africa

Khulisa is word in Nguni languages that are indigenous to southern and eastern Africa.  It means to grow or foster the development of a person or community. In development, it has become increasingly important to measure this growth.

Have governments and donors succeeded in eradicating some of Africa’s most prevailing socio-economic challenges through interventions that improve educational outcomes, reduce youth unemployment, enhance public health and provide more productive agricultural and economic practices?

One of the fundamental principles of Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) is to prove to donors and governments that donor support is effective in achieving its objectives.

Established in 1993 in Johannesburg, South Africa, as one of the first MEL firms in Africa, Khulisa Management Services has responded to the growing need for evaluations and we have been “Accurately Measuring Progress” for clients ever since. We have provided M&E, learning, results management, research, data quality assurance and analytics services to more than 200 public and private sector clients.
