Fresh produce company , G’s, teamed up with us for the first time in 2014, when Aibatou Mbaye (Abi) from the company’s spring onion and radish farm in Senegal was accepted onto the Marshal Papworth 10-week short course.

Living in Yamane, a village close to the farm, Abi was Quality Control Supervisor, having been promoted from picking spring onions. Abi’s siblings also worked on the farm, which grows and packs spring onions and radishes for a number of UK supermarkets – bringing much needed employment to the community, while enabling families to stay together, rather than having to leave in search of work in the cities.

Abi said: “Travelling to the UK would have been far too expensive for me and I would not have been able to undertake this scholarship had it not been for the Marshal Papworth Fund and G’s.”

G’s also welcomed all of the 2014 Marshal Papworrth 10-week short course students to its Second Willow Nursery, in Littleport near Ely, Cambridgeshire so that they could learn how the nursery uses state-of-the-art technology to raise over 80 million plants each year.

Graduate Training Scheme Manager at G’s, Megan Pollexfen commented: “What a difference the Marshal Papworth Fund can make to these individuals’ lives, as well as to the lives of many more back in their home countries.”
