From humble beginnings and a single school, Sunny Varkey, the son of expat teachers, expanded UAE-based GEMS Education to become the largest K-12 private education provider in the world, operating more than 250 schools in 13 countries worldwide. Currently more focused on charitable causes after establishing the Varkey Foundation in 2010, he also pledged to donate at least half of his wealth to charity under the Giving Pledge in 2018. Varkey also started the $1m Global Teacher Prize in 2014 and last year, joined the winner in meeting US President Donald Trump at the White House.
