Dear Sir/ Madam:

Re: Sponsorship for UTech, Jamaica Summer Programme

The University of Technology, Jamaica through its Centre for the Arts is embarking on a summer programme for children titled “Digital Technology meets Culture”; Bringing Arts and Technology Together.”

The programme will run from July 4 –July 29 and is a direct response to the changing landscape of Jamaica. As such we have partnered with ThinkJamaica.net to introduce to the children digital skill sets so that we can build a more productive and entrepreneurial cohort of young people.

A cohort of 30 -60, children ages 6-14 yrs will be given an opportunity to express themselves using digital technology. The students will be exposed to training in video game creation, mobile application development, 2D animation art as well as theatre arts.

The long-term goal is have this program developed into a short course, which would be offered at the Centre for the Arts to the general public. The program will provide participants with a lucrative skillset and an opportunity to become trainers as ThinkJamaica will roll out this program to select primary and secondary schools island wide for the academic year 2016/17.

This sponsorship opportunity will create a valuable presence for your organization as your involvement will catalyze the bridging of Jamaica’s digital divide, help refine our education system and empower the future of our young people through relevant job creation.

We would be honoured if you would partner with the Centre for the Arts on this initiative as a sponsor of this summer programme. ThinkJamaica.net has already committed over 500,000 JMD in Computer Hardware and Software to the summer program, however, we have other associated costs that are critical to the programmes success.

We are seeking an additional, Three Thousand Three hundred dollars (US$3,300.00) to offset these associated costs in order to help this project reach to the youth of the surrounding areas in Papine, August Town and Mona who would not normally be able to afford the program.

We look forward to your favourable response to our invitation to partner with us on this summer enrichment programme in arts and technology for the benefit of our children. I may be contacted by email at culture@utech.edu.jm  or telephone 876- 322-3181/970-5019.

Your respectfully,

Philip Clarke
