Avi Duckor-Jones has fulfilled a promise he made when he won Survivor New Zealand.

When he was deemed the show’s winner last year, the teacher and writer – who is the son of Temple Sinai’s Mashpiah Jo-Ellen Duckor and author Lloyd Jones – vowed to use some of his $100,000 prize money to revisit students he taught in 2014 at a school located on an isolated coast in Ghana, Africa.

“To go back to Ghana, it’s a really long and expensive distance,” says Duckor-Jones.

“I knew I would go back. I just wasn’t sure how or when. So, obviously, Survivor gave me the means to go back.”

The aforementioned trip is now the subject of a new web series called Avi’s Return To Ghana which has been streaming on TVNZ OnDemand since April 3.
