After their selection for the Commonwealth Education Awards, which will be announced next week, three Kenyan teachers are on the verge of international acclaim.

In the Commonwealth Outstanding Teacher category, three teachers  have been nominated. Mr Amos Nyameino, the head of the ICT and Innovations department at Kasigau Girls High School in Voi, Ms Leonida Chepkorir Soi of Moi Forces Academy in Mombasa, and Mr Peter Mokaya Tabichi (winner of the 2019 Global teacher prize), a teacher at Keriko Mixed Day Secondary School, are among those honored. Ms. Soi was also one of the recipients of the AKS Education Awards’ Global Teacher Award.

The Basic Education Quality Improvement Program (Bequip, Kenya) and The Book Club of Manyatta Primary School, both in the Rethinking Education for Innovation category, the M-Pesa Foundation Academy in the Rethinking Education for Work category, the Amani Clubs in the Education as Pathways to Peace category, and the No One Out (NOO) project in the Education for Inclusion category, are as well on the list of candidates for the international accolades.

On April 28, 2022, on the fringes of the Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers (CCEM) in Nairobi, six candidates in each category will be named. Kenya is represented on the shortlist with eight of the twenty entries.

The Commonwealth Secretariat said in a statement that it got a record number of entries (2,462) from 32 countries.
