Mr Peter Mokaya Tabichi, who was named the 2019 world’s best teacher, has landed an ambassadorial role.

Mr Tabichi was on December 1, 2019 appointed as the Dettol Soap hero brand ambassador for 2020.

Dettol is currently carrying out a school hygiene initiative with the aim of reducing hygiene-related ailments among young pupils in Kenya and Mr Tabichi would be the ambassador of the project.

The project will see Mr Tabichi, who is a teacher at Keriko Mixed Day Secondary School, being in charge of over 2 million primary school children who are part of the program.

“For me, teaching is a very powerful job, I want to be part of building the next generation, in itself that, making sure that the students are learning valuable knowledge and skills to make better future is a scary situation,” Tibichi said while commenting on the new role.

He added that it will be his great honour to work with various partners to ensure that we are reducing sanitation-related ailments among school-going children across the country.

The Science and Mathematics teacher in Nakuru County gives away 80 percent of his monthly income to help the less privileged.

He also prides himself with coming up with a Science nurturing club in a school that boasted only one computer.

He says the initiative helped pupils research and design projects that qualified them for national competitions.

The teacher says his students have also won the Royal Society of Chemistry after harnessing local plant life to generate electricity.

Mr Tabichi grabbed the global headlines after beating thousands of other teachers to bag the World’s best teacher.

He is also a Catholic Franciscan brother and it is worth noting that he used to give out 80 percent of his monthly income to help the poor.
