About Us

Molo Mhlaba Schools is pioneering a new model of education for South African girls living in urban townships. Our goal is to:
Operate the first single sex network of schools that offer STEAM education from early childhood development all through primary schools.

We offer safe, affordable, quality education for girls in their communities thus saving parents money in transport fees and the long daily commutes for learners migrating out of townships into urban areas to access quality education.

By growing into a network of 10 schools, we will operate the biggest dance and art school in South Africa.

By focusing on women and girls, we improve the quality of life for them and their families. Create economic pathways that will affect generations to come.

Our Girlpreneur programme equips young girls with entrepreneurial training and small business start-up funding growing an entrepreneurial business incubator across South Africa.

Molo Mhlaba uses the opportunities presented by the Fourth Industrial Revolution to offer a high-quality STEAM based curriculum combined with Montessori education to instill 21st Century skills in women and girls from impoverished backgrounds.

Welcome from the Head of our School 

Dear Esteemed Molo Mhlaba Parents,

It is with immense gratitude and a profound sense of honour that I extend a warm welcome to both new and returning parents to Molo Mhlaba Schools for the forthcoming 2025 academic year. Serving as the principal of such a monumental organization is a privilege beyond words.

One of the greatest highlights of my role here at Molo Mhlaba is the profound connection I share with our girls. Through our interactions, they continually challenge me to evolve as a leader and to better serve them. It is a privilege to be able to contribute to their growth and development in this capacity.

I am excited to share our vision for the upcoming year, one that emphasizes the importance of parental engagement. We encourage you to participate in the three events we have meticulously planned for each term: a general meeting, a school event, and a parent-teacher conference. These gatherings serve as vital avenues for bridging the gap between home and school, fostering meaningful connections, and nurturing relationships with our most crucial stakeholders: the parent body.

At Molo Mhlaba, we are dedicated to providing a safe, affordable, and quality education that empowers our girls to excel in STEAM subjects, cultivate early literacy skills, prioritize physical health, and engage in outreach programs that uplift the Khayelitsha community.

Our school is not just an educational institution; it is a movement inspired by feminist principles, Montessori philosophy, and Pan-Africanism. We are committed to transforming underserved black communities into thriving hubs of opportunity, thereby creating a brighter future for young black girls.

Together, let us embark on this journey of empowerment, resilience, and transformation. I am confident that by working collaboratively, we will pave the way for a brighter, more equitable future for our beloved daughters.

Camagu! Uyabulela uQhudeni, egameni lelali yethu iMolo Mhlaba.

Yours in Education, Mr. Sibulele Magini Head of School
