A Kenyan science teacher named Brother Peter Tabichi has won a global prize for teachers.
Brother Peter Tabichi is called an "exceptional teacher" who gives away 80% of his salary.
He has won a $1 million prize (£760,000) as the world's best teacher.
The award, was presented in a ceremony in Dubai, it acknowledges the "exceptional" teacher's commitment to pupils in part of Kenya's Rift Valley.
He gives away 80% of his pay to support pupils, at the Keriko Mixed Day Secondary School in Pwani Village, Nakuru. These students are very poor and often could not afford uniforms or books.
The competition is run by the Varkey Foundation, had 10,000 other nominations from 179 countries.
Br. Peter is member of the Catholic religious order founded by St Francis of Assisi in the 13th Century.
He teaches in groups of 70 or 80, in overcrowded classrooms and this causes problems for teachers.
Brother Peter was congratulated by Kenya's president, Uhuru Kenyatta.
"Peter - your story is the story of Africa, a young continent bursting with talent. Your students have shown that they can compete amongst the best in the world in science, technology and all fields of human endeavour," said the Kenyan president.
The founder of the prize, Sunny Varkey, says he hopes Brother Peter's story "will inspire those looking to enter the teaching profession and shine a powerful spotlight on the incredible work teachers do all over Kenya and throughout the world every day".
