Molo Mhlaba School innovations include:

The first single sex network of schools that offer STEAM education in 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.

Our Girlpreneur programme that targets young girls with entrepreneurial training and small business start-up funding will operate the biggest youth business incubator across 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.

Lastly, 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.


Our people have access to professional opportunities that include international placement, training and professional development programmes.
