Oprah Makes the Americans Proud

The talk show host Oprah Winfrey is in Johannesburg, South Africa today to see the fruits of her $40 million project, aimed at building a school for good students who are underprivileged. The school called the “Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy” is scheduled to open in January and to enroll about 450 students who will also be provided the textbooks, uniforms and meals, all for free!
The initial lay out of this plan started i5 years ago after Oprah had a talk with Mandela about spending $10 million to build a school for under privileged. The project has come a long way since then and has evolved to a big and expensive development. Oprah herself has hand picked all the students through and interview. In an interview with CNN she expressed a euphoric sense of happiness for giving this appropriate gift to Africans.
