DS 112 letter of request - UPDATED


UP Manila

Dear _____:

Greetings of peace and justice!

We are junior students of the Development Studies Program of UP Manila. As a major course requirement in Development Studies 112 (Third World Studies), we are tasked to conduct a video-recorded key informant interview (KII)  about comtemporary health issues in relation to development and social change.  Our group's chosen interview topic is __________. 

The purpose of this interview project is to gather critical and up-to-date insights about the topic from a specialist in the field and consolidate these group outputs as part of our learning resources in the course. In connection with this, we are requesting you to be our resource person for this worthwhile audio-visual production.  We believe that your vast experience and knowledge on the subject matter will significantly contribute in the broadening and deepening of public discourse which this class project aims to achieve.

For clarification, you may contact us through the numbers provided below. Attached also is our interview questionnaire.

Thank you very much and may this request merit your kind consideration.

In solidarity,
