Introduction

IlearnIT Limited was established in October 2006 but started operating in August 2007

with a variety of responsibilities. One of these is to provide basic ICT appreciation course

dubbed as Computer Driving Licence Programme. This is a training package that equips

individuals to use the computer effectively for word-processing, spreadsheet,

presentation, database, e-mail and internet access.

Problem

Individuals especially the youth would like to patronise the Computer Training

Programme organised by ilearnIT Limited but are restricted because of their inability to

afford the cost of the training.

Proposal

It is being suggested that as part of the social responsibility projects being undertaken to

organise and equip the youth to have employable skills, your company takes either part or

full cost of the training programme organise by ilearnIT Limited. We on the other hand

will also project your company name through certificates branding and other relevant

packages as it deemed fit. We believe a partnership between your company and ours will

go a great long way in community development assistance and outreach.

Research

I have found out from the past that numerous projects have been undertaken by your

company in the quest to lift the living standard of the people in the community you are

operating. For instance the building of the Police Station, OICI numerous work to give

employable skills to the people of the community etc. Such contributions are quite

admirable and commendable but as we are all aware ICT is becoming a bigger part of

human existence. The inability for individuals to be able to use such tools as a form of

communication and exchange limits them greatly in the 21st century. It has been found

also that most of the existing institutions who should be championing such technical

skills transfer is either non-existence or highly under resourced. We believe that our

organisation has the right human and equipment resources to be able to assist the

community with ICT support.

Obstacles and suggestion

It is the desire of IlearnIT Limited to provide Internet access to the community but it is

limited because of the inability of the existing network providers to extend their network

to us. They either do not have their services reaching the area or do not have the facilities

to allow us tap into for internet access. We are therefore extending our plea to your

organisation to extend your internet access to us to aid us impart the internet knowledge

to the youth. We can be made responsible for protecting your network from outside

attacks.

Cost value per package

Since the cost related to training a person with ICT basic skills is quite high, iLearnIT is

introducing a package which is reasonable for your outfit to consider. For a person to be

able to effectively run the training programme dubbed Computer Driving Licence

Programme with us, we are proposing a total package cost of One hundred dollars (US$

100). This is exclusive of training material and an ilearnIT-Newmont sponsored

certificates which would cost twelve dollars (US$ 12). It is being suggested that every

body who would be assisted with the package should be made a bit responsible and

committed in terms of bearing a fractional part of the training program since the overall

benefit goes to the individual in the long run.

Conclusion

If this proposal should be taken in good faith, we believe the name of your company will

forever be on the lips of the youth. Moreover, the youth of the town are expecting much

from your company. This will be a chance to meet partway their high expectation. It is

our high hope that some partnership can be developed between iLearnIT and your

organization in making a difference within this community now and in the future.
