The President committed to donate the lump sum for the expansion of infrastructure and to encourage students to undertake science subjects.
The 36-year-old teacher at Keriko secondary school had been among invited guests at State House by President Kenyatta, who hailed the teacher for the well deserved win.
Raising teaching profession
President Kenyatta stated that the win had uplifted the teaching profession in the country as Tabichi had demonstrated that commitment and integrity pays off.
“You have brought honour and pride to the people of Kenya and your win will raise the profile of the teaching profession,” said the President.
President Kenyatta said the maths and physics teacher was a role model and an inspiration to society especially to fellow teachers and students.
Hand that give
“This is just the beginning, you have become an inspiration and mentor to your colleagues so that they can also aspire to greatness,” said the President.
He commended teacher Tabichi's commitment and devotion to the work of educating the youth saying Kenyans should aspire to emulate virtues and qualities demonstrated by teacher Tabichi.
Tabichi gives away 80% of his income to help the poorest students at the poorly-equipped and overcrowded school who could not otherwise not afford uniforms and books.
