Location: Malaysia

Television host, former model, Miss World Malaysia 2007, Miss Universe Malaysia 2011—and now Deborah Henry has a higher purpose: Malaysia’s nearly 200,000 refugees. Since founding the Fugee School in 2009, she has helped more than 400 students with academic education, job skills, diversity training, art, music and yoga. Meanwhile, her social enterprise Fugeelah trains refugees in jewellery-making and business skills, with part of the proceeds from its handcrafted earring sales going to fund the school.
