chevening scholarship application
After graduating from college, I joined a private radio station as a volunteer and rose to the position of the head of programs. Throughout the time I was rising opportunities presented themselves for me to show my leadership skills. There were times when I had to lead in training new recruits and help them be in a position to be on the radio. This was done by having a one on one practical session with the new recruits on and off the radio.
Through the radio I started producing a radio program that was focusing on environment and development. It was through this program that my eyes opened to a new world of challenges. I started interacting with community leaders together with my co-producer who is an environmental specialist. My interaction with the audience extended from just being on the radio to being with the people and hear them out. My interaction with the community leaders led me into another problem that I never thought of. The youth and immorality.
To be honest, there was nothing I really thought of up until I met two Canadians who have a company that does outsourcing from third world countries. After a talk over coffee with them, I thought of asking if they could set up an office in my home town Lilongwe where they would employ the young ones as data entry clerks for their company. I was asked to write a simple proposal to them and that they would discuss it at their board meeting. I thank God the proposal passed and the idea was bought. We have a site in Lilongwe that employees more than 30 young people who have just graduated from secondary/high schools. This is keeping them busy hence stopping them from being involved in immoral behavior. Apart from preventing them from indulging in immoral behavior, we also equip them with computer and office skills, making them employable. I am the site supervisor and I oversee training, recruiting new staff when the other ones have moved on in different directions of career paths
