Khulisani was founded in 2012 and was established to provide persons with a disability with workplace experience and entrepreneurial opportunities. Khulisani works closely with the I Can! learners during their year-long learnerships. After this time, we have a strong sense of these learners’ abilities, skills, personalities, interests and work ethic. Once they have completed their learnership our aim is to position these students in the workplace, or in their own businesses, whilst also providing creative solutions to companies wishing to authentically and meaningfully position their ED and SED contributions. All South African companies are required to spend 1% of their NPAT in order to achieve 5 points under Enterprise Development. Sponsoring a start-up business or work experience for a person with a disability would enable businesses to not only access the 5 points under Enterprise Development but also the 5 bonus points under Skills Development. Through our Learn to Earn project we are able to provide employment to I Can! learners that have completed their learnership in I Can! This work project provides ex-learners with an income, confidence and workplace experience.
