The 2019 Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize has been won by Peter Tabichi, a teacher from Kenya. Mr Tabichi teaches at the Keriko Mixed Day Secondary School in Pwani Village, situated in a remote part of Kenya’s Rift Valley. The foundation said he had been chosen for his ‘dedication, hard work and passionate belief’ at the school where 95 per cent of children come from poor families, and a third of pupils are either orphans or have only one parent. The school also has only one computer, poor internet access, and a student-teacher ratio of 58:1. Mr Tabichi, who already donates 80 per cent of his salary to community projects said he would use the $1million prize to help students and to ‘put in place projects to help the community curb starvation’. Accepting the prize he talked about the potential of Africa’s young people ‘As a teacher working on the front line I have seen the promise of its young people - their curiosity, talent, their intelligence, their belief. Africa's young people will no longer be held back by low expectations. Africa will produce scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs whose names will be one day famous in every corner of the world. And girls will be a huge part of this story.’
