David Osman Chazungulira, HR and Operations Manager, Victory Christian Children's Home, Malawi
“I am from a family of five. I have two sisters and two brothers, unfortunately my brothers passed away together with both my parents when I was five and I was taken to an orphanage where I grew up and did all my studies. I did my ABE studies in HRM from 2009 to 2012. Now I am married and have a daughter.
I work at Victory Christian Children’s Home - an orphanage founded by Dr. Charles Trombley in 1993. Its main objective is to provide homes for orphans and morally, spiritually and generally educate them. I work here as Human Resource and Operations Manager I particularly enjoy the conflict resolving part of HR, because it broadens knowledge and experience in HRM field
It hasn’t been an easy path to come to this point, it took hard-work and determination. I did not do well all at once, there were some shortfalls on the way but I never gave up, I pushed until I got what I needed.
I learnt about ABE qualifications from a friend who was doing Business Administration, I initially I thought I would just try the qualifications but I begun to like my studies more and more. I had no knowledge about the HRM field until I opted for this course and now I can do things that I never dreamt of doing before.
ABE studies are not easy to a lazy person, it takes time studying and determination to accomplish your goal. Study hard and never give up until you get what you strive for - that’s my advice to those starting ABE studies.”
