This past week I’ve seen a lot of talk about philanthropic efforts different companies are engaged in. I’m very proud of the work my company is doing in supporting the education of rice & wheat breeders — these two crops provide a significant part of the diets of many of the world’s poor. We also have an incredible project in water efficiency maize for Africa (WEMA).
Here’s a video clip from the International Rice Research Institute that helps you understand their work & the importance of it.
In this clip, one of the Gates Foundation folks explains their support of the organization as a philanthropic organization.
