Thandie Newton is to teach acting to girls at Oprah Winfrey's Leadership Academy in South Africa.

“I am really looking forward to it as it’s such a great scheme and it’s nice to give something back,” said Newton.

The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls near Johannesburg was established in 2007 after the TV host answered a plea from Nelson Mandela. The school aims to discover, teach and inspire young South African girls to become a new generation of leaders. The academy selects 11-to-13 year-old girls whose family income is less than $700 a month, and Oprah hand-picked the first 75 students in the summer of 2006.
