The strong partnership between Khulisa and the eMalahleni municipality is a fine example of our approach in action. Khulisa has been an integral player in finding sustainable solutions to pressing community challenges. Stakeholder engagement was key to the implementation of the award winning Anglo American Coal eMalahleni Water Reclamation Plant.

Acid mine drainage, due to local coal mining activity, was posing a significant threat to the water table in the area. The municipal supply of clean water was insufficient to meet demands. The problem was significantly affecting the health and well being of the local community. Khulisa Social Solutions spearheaded the interactions between the mining company, the local municipality and the community, ensuring the effectiveness of the project at community level. The success of this initiative by Anglo American Coal, which now supplies potable water to the eMalahleni municipality, was largely due to the focused community needs analysis, stakeholder engagement, co-ordination and capacity building facilitated by Khulisa.
