Dear fellow friends,
Extending the limits of education through mobile phones implemented by adventure travel program
Thank you for taking the time to read this email. My name is Chuah Sun Soon, a 3rd year SMU (www.smu.edu.sg) student and I am the adventurer of an upcoming bicycle adventure program. Your support will make a difference to this expedition I hope to embark on. I write to you today to invite you to be my support (on all kinds - spreading of the cause, message, education program) on my 101 day overseas expedition to Central Asia on a bamboo bicycle. My travels will commence from Kazakhstan to Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and end in Kazakhstan.
Together with this adventure expedition program, Along the Trail of Silk Road - Circle of Life (http://www.wix.com/ahsunchuah/CircleofLife), we will be kick starting an initiative entitled Owl Ventures (http://www.wix.com/ahsunchuah/owlventures) to promote the possibilities of sustainable education for communities and businesses. Owl Ventures aims to establish a global community that leverages on the expertise of partners like you (with experience and local contacts in foundations, NGOs and Education) to promote education in rural areas. Owl Ventures will be sustaining this global community with innovative social enterprises. With your support, we hope to be able to reconnect with the rich, forgotten lands of Central Asia that have been tormented by the aftereffects of war, and rediscover the gem that used to be the epicenter of trade.
We also hope to be able to capitalize on the publicity of the adventure expedition program, Along The Trail of Silk Road, to not only create more awareness about the importance of education in rural areas, but also to spread the good word and benefits of the adventure travelers. During the expedition, suitable beneficiaries or rural villages would also be handpicked to benefit from our program. This would provide the volunteers an opportunity to take on real projects and implement them, while our innovative social enterprises provide their sustainability.
I respectfully appeal for your support to collaborate on this initiative and to be given an opportunity to work together. Your support is instrumental to the success of the program, without which it will not be possible.
Meanwhile, should you require any further assistance, please feel free to contact me at my email at
Thank you very much.
