Urgent assistance needed to facilitate Ugandan child rights activist present a paper in Canada

Dear colleagues,

I am a Ugandan volunteer child rights activist and freelance scribe who has been invited to present my paper on the Topic: VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN IN UGANDA at a Conference organized by the Association for Research on Mothering in York University , Toronto , Canada , 23-26 October, 2008. (See Conference website: www.yorku.ca/arm)I am the main presenter and author of this paper. I will co-present it with a woman MP on the Parliamentary Gender and Social Development committee.

I have been offered free accommodation by the Conference Organizers at a Hotel adjacent to York University . See attached copy. Besides, I have just returned from Australia where I presented a paper on the topic: “Child labour, a threat to the future skilled manpower in Uganda ” at an International Conference on Child labour and Child Exploitation in August 2008. Please find this paper on the conference website: www.childjustice.org/wsecl/html/papers.htm I have previously presented papers in Belgium (2006) and Azerbaijan (2008) and attended a Child Rights in Practice training organized by the International Institute for Child Rights and Development at the University of Victoria in Canada last year.

May I kindly request for your assistance in raising funds for my air ticket to facilitate my participation at this important conference. The British Airways Corporation in Kampala has promised me a discounted ticket offer at 1,887 US$ on humanitarian grounds. I have also contacted KLM Airlines in Uganda who gave me a tentative flight booking but they promised to give me a discounted rate.See KLM flight booking below.

May i suggest that at least 19 people send me at least 100 US $ each to me using western union money transfer or moneygram money transfer so that i raise that mony urgently so that i be able to purchase the ticket from British Airways or KLM air ways in their Kampala office. So far 2 people have offered 100 $ and 50 US$ respectively from pulse wire. After sending it via western union or money gram,immediately text the password on my cellphone number +256 751 548255 so that i withdraw the money immediately because i must travel on tuesday the 21st October 2008. inform your partners to help.

Alternatively, one individual philanthropist or philanthropic organization can purchace the e-ticket online. She or He should indicate my departure date as 21st October 2008and return date around 30th December 2008 and send it to me via my email See my contact details below.

I will be grateful when this request meets your benevolence.

Yours truly,

your need for airfare

Dear Fredrick,

I responded on my journal page under Educate a woman and you educate a village.

I am not able to help you financially, but wish you well on getting enough contributions to buy the plane ticket. It does seem to me that your request would have been more successful if given a couple of months ago, instead of a week before you are going to travel.

Good luck in your work.
peace,
William

Attention: Mwajuma Andersson

Hi Mwajuma Anderson,

I have been invited to attend yet another conference in Toronto on the 27-29 November 2008.

I am supposed to attend the forth coming International Development Conference-2008 organized by the Centre for Agricultural Resources & International Development (CEFARD: www.cefard.org) in Toronto, Canada this November 27-29 and present my paper on the theme: Child labour, a threat to the future skilled manpower in Uganda but i need funding to cater for my economy air ticket. See attached invitation letter.

CEFARD is a not-for-profit, non-governmental, and humanitarian organization. CEFARD's mandate is to champion the course of global poverty alleviation through agricultural resources and developmental tools mostly in the developing nations of the world.

The British Airways Corporation in Kampala Uganda have promised me a discounted ticket offer at 1,887 US$ (Entebbe-Toronto) on humanitarian grounds. The most important need at the moment is the air ticket. I want to suggest that at least 19 people offer me 100 US $ each to make a pool offer of 1,887 US $ for my air ticket. Preferably use money gram or western union money transfer and text the secret question and answer, including the control number to my cellphone: +256 751 548255.See my contacts below.

Alternatively, connect me to a philanthropist who can purchase an air ticket on line and send the economy e-ticket to my email address below. Let Departure date be 20th November,Arrival-21 November;Return departure date-December 30; Arrival date 31 December 2008; Entebbe-Toronto.

I have previously presented papers children's rights in Australia 2008, Belgium (2006) and Azerbaijan (2008) on political rights of Ugandan prisoners at an International human rights conference in Baku and attended a Child Rights in Practice training organized by the International Institute for Child Rights and Development at the University of Victoria in Canada last year.

I look forward to your benevolence and cooperation.

Thanks,

Need for airfare

Hi Fredrick, The dates of your conference aren't correct. You show October 21, 2008, but this is 2011. Since you are being asked to speak at a number of different countries, why don't they offer to pay your way there, give you a hotel room and meals, so you can attend. What are the dates of your engagements and can they be confirmed. It's hard to do fund raising with all the facts. Best wishes, William
