My name is Uma Mahor and I am a resident of Canada. I am writing this letter to get some information about the one month volunteering programme offered by you, which is, especially designed for people who can contribute by educating underprivileged children. I was very impressed by your idea of giving diverse experience to kids as you change the teacher every month. Moreover, the teacher come from various parts of the world to provide a global experience. Hence, I am also looking forward to be a part of your organization. To elaborate further, I am software developer and have a good knowledge of computers. In additional, I have a good command over English language, which I can use to educate children about English. Apart from this, I have been associated with many philantropic activities during my college days so I can use my previous experience while dealing with kids.
So, I would like to join the one month teaching programme and I am free for the two months.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
