FedEx partners with The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation to advance education in South Africa

According to the World Bank Group, there are 130 million girls around the world that are not in school. Poverty, cultural norms and practices, living in remote or underserved locations, and violence negatively impacts access to education for these possible future leaders.

In an effort to contribute to developing core skills in young girls, FedEx has donated $90,000 (more than R1.2 million) to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation (OWLAF), marking their third straight year of support. The donation will be utilized for the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls’ tertiary scholarship support programme, which provides bursaries for tertiary studies to eligible students who have graduated from the academy.
