My name is VARAN SINGH ROHILA and I am a student at NIT HAMIRPUR. Me and my team (SUMIT SHARMA, VIVEK GUSAIN) are looking to raise sponsorship to help us pay for the cost incurred for our participation in the upcoming program organised by Hult Prize Foundation and United Nations which will take place in Thailand in March 2020.
Let me introduce you something about Hult Prize. Hult Prize, organized by Hult Prize Foundation and United Nations, was established by Bertil Hult, and is an annual, year-long competition that crowd-sources ideas from college students after challenging them to solve a pressing social issue around topics such as food security, water access, energy, and education. This year’s challenge is “Bold Business for Better Planet”.

The Prize is a partnership between Hult International Business School and the United Nations Foundation. Former President Bill Clinton selects the challenge topic and announces the winner each September; he mentioned it in a 2012 TIME Magazine article about "the top 5 ideas that are changing the world for the better". The Hult prize has been referred to as the “Nobel Prize for students” by Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus.
I’m writing to you to ask you to support our trip to Thailand. Just a small donation and you can help us join hands to make positive changes to our world. Without your assistance and sponsorship, we won’t be able to afford this great opportunity.
If you would like to speak further about our trip, feel free we’d love to answer any questions you have and give you more information.
