Graduates of the Marshal Papworth Fund's Sustainable Agriculture course share their knowledge across Africa.


14 September 2021

Four female graduates of the Marshal Papworth Fund 10-week sustainable agriculture course at Harper Adams have spoken to Potato Review about teaching African communities about sustainable agricultural practices.

In their interview, Florence Achieng Agunda, Ramatu Saaka, Victorine Atieno and Charity Chimphamba Phiri explained that after attending the short course, they returned to their respective African countries armed with the skills needed to sustainably farm their own land and teach others how to do so.

Each of the women also discussed their own achievements and the ways through which they have been sharing their knowledge.

The Marshal Papworth programme provides scholarships for students from developing countries to study agriculture at leading UK universities and colleges, as a way of trying to prevent hunger and food shortages in developing countries across the world.
