I am a fourth year student in the International Development and
Globalization program at the University of Ottawa (Canada).
I have been thinking, for quite long time, of creating an event in my
university, to inform people of what is going on around the world
regarding poverty, disease, human rights, etc. Therefore I thought I can

Development”. There might be a slight change in it.
If I collect a satisfying number of pictures, I am planning on doing the
exhibition during the “International Culture and Development Week” at
University of Ottawa, in the beginning of February 2011. It is an annual
series of activities and events promoting International Development.
The specific topics that I am looking to exhibit during that particular
3-Violations of Human Rights.
5-Environmental Challenges (Disasters, Waste Management, Pollution and etc.).
6- Culture/ Global citizenship
Finally, Copyrights will be strictly respected in this exhibition.

exhibit. Therefore, I would like to know if you are interested on helping
me collect pictures to promote development.
I would like to thank you for your consideration and I am looking forward
to hearing from you.
Please excuse my long email.
