The 2019 Global teacher award winner Br Peter Tabichi has been conferred the 2020 Ahimsa Award by the Trustees of the Institute of Jainology in London for selfless action and compassion.
Br Tabichi was awarded this year’s award by the institute for his compassion in his work to support his students and community. The announcement was made during the 18th Jain All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) Ahimsa Day meeting online.
Tabichi, who rose to be awarded the Global Teacher award in 2019 said that it was an honour to receive the award. He was also chosen for his work in enhancing school attendance and decreasing cases of violence by educating communities on growing crops that are drought-resistant.
Tabichi was chosen for this year’s honour for his work in dramatically enhancing attendance at his college, decreasing ranges of native violence and even educating native communities on how one can develop crops that may resist famine.
“I entered the religious life because I wanted to freely express my gift to the community and be able to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to the teaching profession without holding anything back. My father and other members of my family were teachers and true role models for me when I was growing up. I admired their sense of selfless dedication to wanting to improve the lives of others through the gift of teaching,” he added.
The Institute of Jainlology (IOJ) represents 32 UK-based Jain organizations in authorities and inter-non secular affairs.
The award came days after Tabichi alongside world marathon holder Eliud Kipchoge among several others were sworn into Heroes Council.
The Council shall have regard to patriotism, national unity, the rule of law, sharing and devolution of power as well as human dignity, equity, social justice, and inclusiveness.
Tabichi won the 2019 Global Teacher Prize in March 2019 at the Global Education & Skills Forum in Dubai.
