Celebrated Teacher

Teacher, Bro Peter Tabichi

Peter Tabichi, the Kenyan teacher who won the 2019 Global Teacher Prize, will address the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

Tabichi, who teaches at Keriko Mixed Day Secondary School at Pwani village in Njoro, Nakuru County will be expected to speak during the event that will attract leaders from all over the world.

Brother Tabichi is a member of the Franciscan religious order, a Roman Catholic religious order founded in the early 13th century by St. Francis of Assisi.

According to Brother Tony Donald from Ireland, Brother Tabichi will recite the popular St Francis prayer before the start of the general assembly.

He is also expected to give brief remarks on how he made it to the top in the teaching profession, after being crowned the best teacher in the world.

Meeting Trump

The assembly starts its sessions on September 17 and top of the agenda are climate change, universal health coverage and the politics of sustainable development.

On Monday, brother Tabichi met with United States of America President Donald Trump where he was lauded for his selfless nature to help needy students.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham stated: “His dedication, hard work, and belief in his student’s talent has led his poorly resourced school in Kenya to emerge victorious after taking on the country’s best schools in national science competitions. Peter, you inspire us all! Thank you for your commitment to your students.

Mr Tabichi, who has travelled the world inspiring many, was appointed as the champion for children in conflicts and crisis by Varky Foundation.
