To Whom It May Concern.
My name is Jabez Jansen Mukandila. I am 17 years old and I am currently in Grade 11 at Dominican Convent School. I am writing this letter to appeal for a sponsorship to participate in a Basketball Talent Camp in America from 9-15 July 2019. (See invite below).
The Elite Euro Talent Camp and Showcase provides players with an opportunity to travel to the United States of America and showcase their talents to American coaches and scouts and I feel very privileged to have been invited to this prestigious event.
In 2018 I was offered a 50% basketball scholarship to Friends Central School in Philadelphia. Although this was a very good offer, my parents were unable to afford the school fees and the offer was subsequently declined.
My dream and ambition is to become a professional basketball player and the Elite Euro Talent Camp and Showcase would be the ideal opportunity for me to start the journey towards fulfilling this goal.
The total fee for the trip and camp, including the registration fee, visa and plane ticket is 2650 EURO (+/-R43 100). My family and I are able to pay the deposit fee for the basketball showcase event which is 550 EURO (+/-R9000) and the Visa which is 160 EURO (+/-R2500). My hope is that you would be able to contribute the remaining fee which is 1900 EURO (+/-R30 000), this includes the remaining fee of the registration and the plane ticket. The remaining registration fee is 900 EURO (+/-R15 000) and this is due on 31st May 2019.
All the paperwork and documentation is attached.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my request and I hope that you respond favorably.
