One of the cool projects that PATH has been working on for years to put a dent in global malnutrition just got a significant boost in the place it could have its biggest impact—Africa.
PATH, the global health hothouse with headquarters in Seattle, is announcing today it has received a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to bring its fortified “Ultra Rice” to the small, landlocked central African nation of Burundi. PATH will work with its partner, Federal Way, WA-based World Vision, a Christian humanitarian group, to distribute the fortified rice as part of a food assistance plan.
