Khulisa’s approach is rooted in the highest level of ethics and transparency.


Twenty-two years of working in the M&E field in Africa and globally have refined the way we work. Our experience has allowed us to develop an approach that reflects our values and expertise.


Our evaluations are based on uncovering theories of change and stakeholder participation. We use best practice methodologies and continuously aim to build individual and institutional capacity in our projects. Khulisa believes that good M&E focusses on both highlighting positive outcomes and uncovering negative findings or unanticipated impacts.


We adopt a number of research methodologies during our projects, including:

  • Utilisation Focussed Evaluation
  • Developmental Evaluation
  • Performance Evaluation
  • Impact Evaluation
  • Value-based Evaluation
  • Quasi Experimental and Randomised Control Trials
  • Social Network Analysis
  • Most Significant Change
  • Appreciative Inquiry
  • Value for Money Analysis


Khulisa uses the following techniques for data collection:

  • Surveys (online, face-to-face, mobile devices and tablets, households)
  • Interviews
  • Observations
  • Audits
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • Desk Studies and Literature Reviews
  • Knowledge Attitudes Practices Behaviour (KAPB) Surveys
