Oprah Winfrey, Oprah's Angel Network and the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation

Through her daytime talk show, Oprah Winfrey became known for giving away the best gifts. Off-screen she gave away grants to schools and encouraged individuals to become ambassadors for change in their own communities through the now-closed Oprah’s Angel Network. Her Leadership Academy in South Africa is an all-girls boarding school that seeks to improve the region's plight by encouraging gifted girls to push past their circumstances and excel.
