"THE STORY OF MY HEART"

 

Many Malawian children have failed to achieve their academic ambitions due to social, economical, as well as ethnical reasons. This problem is more prevalent especially if you are orphaned at an early stage of your life.

 

However, through the Big hand of Almighty God, the material and moral support  from many relatives, friends and the spiritual support from various groups at Chitedze, Bvumbwe research stations, Salima and Blantyre, they have made me to achieve academic heights which many Malawians in a similar situation have failed, not because they are not intelligent, but because of lack of support.

 

The road from an orphan in 1975, to completing JCE while working as a labourer at Icrisat and passing MSCE at Salima Night Secondary, then the Certificate in Agriculture at Natural Resources College, before working with the Malawi Government, Lever Brothers, Panner Seed companies has made me to cast all my eyes above.

 

Indeed with great support from you friends, God I completed my MSc in Environment and Development from one of the leading Universities in the UK, the University of East Anglia. Today, the road is leading to produce the first PhD student in the life history of my family since 1870. May God continue to bless all who have opened their doors, gave me food, water, shelter and money, and indeed all the friends I met at Bunda the institution of my heart for turning me into a decision maker.

Davie Mkwambisi is one of the distinguished alumni Bunda College has ever produced. To those who attended this noble college in the recent years 1990 to date will agree with me what I mean to categorise him as such.

He is the founder of Students Alliance for Rural Youth in Development SARYD, an organisation which works with Bunda College students and the rural community around Bunda College.
 
If you ask Davie what makes him to be so innovative and contribute much to the college. The answer is in his story which has been put here as an abstract enititled "THE STORY OF MY HEART" the full version is available on Buncoalumni discussion forum.
