Elizabeth Dearborn Hughes

CO-FOUNDER AND CEO, AKILAH INSTITUTE AND DAVIS COLLEGE
Location: Hong Kong

Elizabeth Dearborn Hughes co-founded Akilah Institute in 2010, after moving to Rwanda in 2006 and realising how many women lacked the educational opportunities that would allow them to contribute to the country’s recovery. It provides an education that readies people for employment; 80 percent of graduates are the first in their families to receive higher education. Her latest project is Davis College, which aims to educate a million students across Asia and Africa by 2030
