    Dear Moses Zinnah,

    Greetings from BHEARD. I am happy to share some good news with you regarding one of your employees who is currently studying in the U.S. under a BHEARD sponsorship and who has been selected to represent BHEARD at the World Food Prize in Des Moines, Iowa, this week.

     As we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Dr. Norman E. Borlaug establishing the World Food Prize, our 2016 conference will convene an outstanding array of international leaders, policy makers, farmers, executives from agribusiness and non-governmental organizations, and scientific, academic and development experts to address the most critical issues facing global food security.

    We hope that you will share this news with other colleagues, and join BHEARD in congratulating one of your employees for this achievement.

     

    Best Regards
