|Uagadou School of Magic|
Uagadou School of Magic was a wizarding school located in Africa. It was the only school of magic in the world to select students via Dream Messenger, which left a token in children's hands while they slept, much as young witches and wizards in the United Kingdom received a Hogwarts letter.
Uagadou may be a variant spelling of Ouagadou, a commune in southwestern Mali, or Wagadu, a name for the Ghana Empire, which was located in what is now southeastern Mauritania and western Mali. It is also possible that it is derived from Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso.
