Khula App – Production, distribution and consumption

5Khula_PD&C

The Khula App is intended to support the production and distribution of food in two key areas. Firstly, one of the major barriers to success for Soweto farmers is their inability to access information related to farming as well-resourced public libraries are scarce in Soweto and while most farmers can and do access the Internet, they often struggle to locate information that they understand. In this regard the Khula app aims to deliver information at the appropriate communication level. Secondly, due to their geographical dispersion, it can be difficult to co-ordinate farming activities. The Khula app is designed to allow farmers and farming stakeholders to easier mange collective production and distribution. (Design Society Development DESIS Lab)
