Case story: Trizza Chibambo

Hailing from Bwanya village Traditional Authority Makhuwira, Chikwawa district, Trizza’s dream was always to be a teacher. Even though she took up a business Management course, which she later dropped out of before enrolling at DAPP Chilangoma Teachers training college on the 16th September 2015. On the 2nd of November she graduated from the TTC making her the only female student teacher who passed her primary teaching examinations with a distinction.

Trizza was among the students whose training was being supported by OFID through the Federation of Humana People to People and she accredits her success to DAPP because the teaching style there has taught her a lot which she is currently using as she is teaching at Miqrat Foundation which is an orphanage centre in Thyolo district, Goliyati area. “At the college I learnt class management, how children behave through child study, how to handle large classes and how to interact with the community just to mention a few. The training has enabled me to be a good teacher and I have fitted in here because of it” she exclaims

Happy To Be Another Kind Of Teacher

She says that her best and most important period of study in her teacher training was the Charter Subjects period. “Charter period was the most important period to me because we as students were divided into different departments, I was in the Food production department where we were learning how to prepare food stuffs and making juice. In addition, we also had a trip to Bvumbwe research station to learn how some fruits are grown. This experience made me to be a teacher who is equipped with knowledge in some of the things here in Malawi. This gives me an opportunity to not only rely on teaching but also to open my eyes and see that I can also run a business which can help me in my day to day life.”

Trizza started working at Maqrat Foundation on the 1st of August 2018 and is enjoying it: “I teach in standard 4 and 8. In standard 4, I teach English, Chichewa, Mathematics, life skills, Expressive arts, Bible knowledge, Agriculture and Social science while in Standard 8, I teach Social science. I really love my job. It’s everything I dreamt it would be and more.
