Rema DuPont is a mother, entrepreneur and business leader who has developed companies both in the United States and the United Kingdom. Her focus is to create a positive impact on our global community through international development and international affairs.
Raised in the United Kingdom and educated in London and the United States, she speaks four languages, has traveled the world, and brings a truly global perspective to her philanthropic work. She was inspired to always help others less fortunate by her mother, Mary Sherrill Eagle, who exposed her to the philanthropic lifestyle and mission at a very young age.
Rema has a profound sense of gratitude for her life and is committed to giving back through service to others. Rema founded The Sherrill Foundation in her mother's honor to work to restore hope to communities where it has been lacking for far too long. She is driven to make a significant and positive impact, and is determined to help make the world a better place – community by community. “I believe in people, I believe in hope, and I believe in empowering people to achieve their full potential and realize their dreams.”
As vice president of the UN Women for Peace Association, Rema works to further their mission to provide opportunities for women through social, cultural, educational and empowerment programs while partaking in a global peace building process.
