TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
My name is Majeed Kwesi Garba, and I am a student at Swiss Management Center, Business Administration, Zug, Switzerland and studying Business Administration (Distance). I am pleased to inform you that I have been recognized as an exceptional young leader in my community by recently being accepted to the 26th International Youth Leadership Conference taking place in Prague, Czech Republic, July 21st – 26th, 2013. This in not only a great opportunity for me but for our community and I am writing to you to seek your support to make sure that I can take full advantage of this unique experience.
In order to attend this educational conference I need to raise 60000 CZK which is 3200 USD, including the conference fee of 1 000 USD, transportation to and from Prague (airfare), visa and health insurance costs, and other expenses. The conference fee includes tuition, accommodation, transportation during the week and all conference related activities, including all meals.
I am approaching your business to sponsor me and contribute towards these expenses, so that I can go to Prague and take advantage of this important event. By ensuring that I can attend, your business will be recognized internationally along side other businesses that value education, leadership development and the promotion of cross cultural ideals. I am more than willing to make a presentation to your board of directors about the conference and after the conference I would be happy to share my experience with your board and outline what I learned during my stay in the CzechRepublic. Your business’s name will be mentioned in my press release about the conference and your logo displayed on all conference materials and web site. I am attaching a Sponsorship Package offered to you, so that you are aware of all the benefits you will receive.
The IYLC is attended by an average of 100 participants representing over 30 countries. The conference itself is composed of simulations of international organizations like the United Nations Security Council, International Criminal Court and European Parliament, presentations by Czech Senate, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and various embassies, as well as keynote speakers from around the world. The most recent conferences addressed conflicts and problems that exist throughout the world with insight provided by representatives from Serbia, Palestine, Israel, Zimbabwe, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, the United States, and Ukraine, and touched upon critical topics like human trafficking, migration policies, media and freedom of speech, nuclear non-proliferation, climate change, UN reform, genocide in Darfur and conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
