    Dear Sir
    Greetings from Bangladesh
    It is my great pleasure to introduce myself that I am an Educational Film and Television Program Maker as well as a researcher. I worked in the in the media division of Bangladesh Open University for 18 years as an Educational Program Producer. I made my self-retirement from the Govt. Service in April 2011. Mainly I work on Educational Technology, Climate Adaptation and Human development issues. Recently one of my research paper title “SCHOOLING ON THE BOAT – ADAPT WITH THE CLIMATE CHANGE” has been accepted in the forth coming 10th annual International Technology, Education and Development (INTED) Conference Valencia (Spain). 7th – 9th of March, 2016. The Conference authority already sends me an Invitation letter to attend this high-status event to present my paper. Certainly it is a matter of big prestige and pride for me as well as for Bangladesh. Due to non preferential treatments with all participants; the INTED-2016 authority would not provide any financial support. AS you know, being a citizen of a very low income under developing country, it is fully beyond of my ability to attend this event by self-finance..On the other hand in Bangladesh it is a rare case to find out any sponsor on this issue. That’s why I need some sorts of support and cooperation from your side.
    So your kind information ; so far I presented papers in 30 International conferences around the world on my related subjects till July 2015 and also I got three times the most prestigious “UNESCO Japan Prize” awards for my three Educational productions in 2007, 2010 and 2013 respectively.

    I hope the authority of “AuthorAID Call for Applications for Travel and Workshop Grants 2016 ” would be kind enough to consider my circumstances and would expand their kind cooperation to attend this important event in time. Please find my full resume and other papers in your e-mail box for your kind justification.
    I am hopefully waiting for your response. As you know the time is very short.

    Regards

    KM Taj-Biul hasan
