Give2Asia visits IRRI

Serving as a catalyst for philanthropic investment in Asia, three delegates of US-based social enterprise Give2Asia visited IRRI to learn about the Institute’s research activities and explore possible areas of collaboration on 6 May 2014.

IRRI Director for External Relations Corinta Guerta welcomed the delegates led by Give2Asia Vice Chair Teresa Orr.

The visitors received an overview and learned about the Institute’s mission. IRRI principal scientist Roland Buresh gave a presentation on the Rice Crop Manager.

The delegates had the opportunity to interact with scientists during their tour of the International Rice Genebank, Grain Quality and Nutrition Center, and the Postharvest Center.

IRRI has partnered with Give2Asia, which ensures safe, effective and impactful international philanthropy, in order to engage more donors who share IRRI’s cause.  The donations received through Give2Asia support IRRI’s work with hundreds of research and development partners across Asia.
