Alice has also travelled extensively in other parts of Africa and regularly goes back to oversee some micro enterprise projects in Ghana which she has started with friends.

Alice got involved with the Marshal Papworth Fund 3 years ago because of her deep rooted passion for improving the agricultural landscape of an area, so that it benefits fully those that use it for food and income. She commented: “Working all over Africa means I have seen how poor land management, environmental degradation and inequality affect the farmed landscape and those trying to live there. Alongside this the lack of education limits opportunities for change. This makes education fundamental to change and it is crucial for people living in these conditions to have access to new ideas and knowledge.”
