Need: Travel sponsor to attend the US Telecommunications Training Institute (USTTI) in Omaha

I am pleased to inform you that I have been awarded a training by the United States Telecommunications Training Institute (USTTI) “Satellite and Internet Delivery of Educational Television and Multimedia” scheduled for December 02 to 17 2010 in Omaha, NE, USA.

I would love to take up this training because it is inline with the project in terms of ICT innovations and strategies in approaching Diseases in the pioneer project I am running called Infectious Diseases Control by use of Information and Communication Technologies (IDCICT).

I recently got confirmation from Jim O’Connor (, the Senior Curriculum Coordinator of USTTI that they will raise the money to support my living expenses costing $2200 during the training. I am however required to raise airfare on my own. I searched through online booking this morning and found it will cost me between $1417 to $1778 for round trip minus a visa costing $100.

In summary I am looking for funds between $1417 to $1878.

Having not traveled beyond Uganda, I have no idea of what a plane looks like inside, how it feels in there, worse still I have never come close to or touched one!

Groomed in Kisoko, a village in Tororo District Uganda, the furthest I have reached is Northern Uganda, Masindi and Kampala where I am working (within Uganda) leave alone when I was a year old when my Mom and I traveled to some village in Kenya to pick my uncle who was suffering in his job of rearing cattle.

It will be the best of my travel experience given the opportunity. The greatest of all acquiring knowledge and skills that I will share with the entire PulseWire and World Pulse and to benefit communities within my reach.
I am seeking support from well wishers.

Attached is the details of online booking search I made today, along with the acceptance letter and a recommendation letter from my Organization.

I will be VERY grateful for your support towards my career and dreams.
