The Board bears primary responsibility for ensuring that the organisation remains true to its values and principles, faithful to its mission, and effective in carrying out its public benefit activities in the public interest.

The Board also bears the responsibility with particular reference to financial transparency, accountability, and budgetary discipline.


Although the Board is ultimately responsible for the governance of the NPO, this responsibility is carried into effect by the organisational management in day-to-day operations.

Prospective volunteers are trained, with respect to the Khula Code of Conduct, Child Protection policy, and program contents.  Each volunteer is required to undergo Police Clearance before working with the children.

Khula tries to inspire volunteers to commit for at least two to three hours per week for a year. Through experience, Khula understands that consistency in a child’s life is the path to a trustworthy relationship. Khula representatives, which include volunteers, are in many instances the only consistent factor in these children’s lives.
