Flying for first time, Kenyan wins $1 million Global Teacher Prize!


  • 10 teachers from all over the world were shortlisted from a staggering 10,000 entries.
A teacher from a remote, poverty-ridden, village in Kenya, Peter Tabichi, was announced as the world's best teacher and was awarded $1million for his outstanding work with his students.

Tabichi was this year's winner of Dubai's Global Teacher Prize by the Varkey Foundation, which aims to highlight the importance of the teaching profession.


Tabichi, 36, is a maths and physics teacher at Keriko Secondary School in Kenya's Pwani Village. His school has only computer with proper internet connection and he gives away 80 per cent of his earnings to the poor. He left teaching at a private school to help students in need.
