My name is Braam Jordaan and I am currently serving as WFDYS Board Member and Council Member of UNICEF Global Partnership of Children with Disabilities (UNICEF GPcwd).
I am raising R60,000 to cover the flights, visa and the camp registration(s) for up to 4 South African youth participants to attend the 6th World Federation of the Deaf Youth Section (WFDYS) Youth Camp to be held in Istanbul, Turkey, July 19-25 2015.
Attending WFDYS camp was one of the biggest eye-openers for me. At the WFDYS camps, I was given opportunity to meet so many youths from all kinds of countries all over the world and I got to learn about their countries’ history, culture, sign languages and especially a lot to do with the ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
It was life changing experience for me and I was also given a platform to raise issues, to build, to contribute and importantly to make impact at the high-level meetings such as United Nations in New York City.
The purpose of this fundraiser is really simple: I would like to see new youth leaders coming from the younger generation!
In exchange I am willing to grow a beard! I pledge not to shave until the Congress.
