Miriam Kaluwa Sichinga
I am Miriam Kaluwa. I was born on July 20th 1970. I am married to Mr Osky Sichinga, blessed with two children, boy and girl. I attended various primary schools across Malawi. I completed my secondary school education in 1988. Went to Our Lady of Wisdom Catholic Business College and studied Secretarial and Office Administration and completed with diploma (advanced certificates) in Shorthand, English for Business Communication, Office Practice and Procedures, Book-Keeping and Typewriting.
I have excellent skills in customer care services, able to work with minimum supervision, management of staff both surbodinates and superiors, execellent communication skills, very fluent in both written and spoken English and experience in office management, financial and executive administrative support.
I am a hardworking, professional and with a high sense of integrity and an open minded person. I am eager to learn new things all the time and to further advance my career. I am sociable and eager to live with people with diverse careers and backgrounds.
My attitude is quite positive. I have uncompromised esteem towards management. I have full respect of corporate assets including time.
I have great passion to speak out on social issues affecting girl child and women at large. I do hope this forum is ideal for my cause. I wish the world could listen critically and address numerous social and economic challenges girl child and women are facing especially in Africa (in particular Malawi).
Malawi being the least developed country in the world, the magnitude of poverty impacts so negatively on the lives of women and girl children. Safe and clean drinking water, sanitation, food, finances, access to higher education, shelter, etc.
