In­di­vid­u­als who have made an im­pact on so­ci­ety

The Rare Legacy award fo­cuses on busi­ness lead­ers who have made a so­cial im­pact through pro­grammes that im­prove a com­mu­nity’s qual­ity of life, pro­mote al­tru­ism and so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity. Nu­mer­ous re­cip­i­ents of the Men of the Year fall un­der this cat­e­gory. They in­clude Lex Low, an en­tre­pre­neur and hair stylists, who a empts to change so­ci­ety “one hair­cut at a time.” De­spite hav­ing a fast ex­pand­ing busi­ness, Low spends his free time cu ing hair for the home­less while also train­ing refugees to learn the trade. John-Son Oei of EPIC Homes has fo­cused on help­ing the marginalised and the un­der­priv­i­leged “one home at a time.” For­mer Miss Malaysia Deb­o­rah Henry is the only one to have re­ceived a “Woman of the Year” from Au­gust Man. At the time, fresh from the Miss Uni­verse pageant, Henry had gal­vanised the na­tion in a way that was un­prece­dented. Since then, she has come to be known as an ac­tivist whose Fugee School pro­vides free ed­u­ca­tion to refugee chil­dren.
