Oprah's Students Celebrate a Milestone
Congratulations, Class of 2013! The young women at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls—South Africa graduate today and begin the next stage in their lives. Oprah will be on hand to personally send off the 74 seniors, who hail from all nine provinces of South Africa: the Eastern Cape, the Free State, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West, the Northern Cape and the Western Cape.
Oprah opened the school in Henley-on-Klip, a village near Johannesburg, in January 2007.
Learn more about the Leadership Academy, previous graduates and how Oprah's dream of educating young women became a reality.
