School Overview


Oprah Winfrey Founder of OWLAG school

A word from our Founder

I know for sure that this school will change the trajectory of their lives. They will excel and pass their excellence on to their families, their nation, and our world. The school’s fundamental value is to encourage each girl to develop her critical thinking to create the best life possible for her, and then use her life in service to others, no matter her calling. 

Ms Oprah Winfrey: Life’s Greatest Work.


Putting Our Girls Front & Center

Back in 2002, our Founder made a commitment to the late President Mandela to build a school for girls. Her vision was, and still is to create a safe space to educate, nurture, to empower and of course, to inspire this next generation of leaders for South Africa, Africa and the World.
