TRAINING: International Deaf Youth Leadership Camp

Posted on 5 March 2008. Filed under: Announcements, Capacity Building and Leadership, Deaf, Education and Training Opportunities, Human Rights, Opportunities, youth | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Asia-Pacific Deaf Youth Leadership Camp will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia from 22nd – 27th June 2008 and run by the Indonesian Association for the welfare of the Deaf Youth.

[Edited March 6 ’08: This announcement originally indicated that this was called the World Federation of the Deaf Youth Leadership Camp. However, it has been brought to my attention that this is not officially designated as a WFD camp, though WFD is aware of it. Rather, it seems to be primarily for the Asian-Pacific region. Interested individuals should contact Donny to inquire for further detail and clarification. Further corrections or clarifications will be made to this post if and when I receive them. Apologies for any inconvenience.]

The theme of the camp is “WE ARE ONE”.

The youth camp is aimed at identifying ways to advocate for Deaf people’s human rights and will involve training in leadership and organizational activities; stimulate networking so that Deaf people interchange rewarding experiences, access to communication and information. The camp will also provide an opportunity to Deaf youths around the world to participate in a gathering at international level and to gain experiences and exposure. For more information about this camp, kindly contact Donny in Indonesia on e-mail:

Because the host country is still developing, it is very hard to offer financial support.

Registration ends on 15th April 2008.

Delegates from the Asia Pacific region pay a registration fee of 250 US Dollars while those from other countries pay a total of 300 US dolars. The registration fee includes meals and accomodation. The delegates are expected to meet their flight costs (air tickets) to and from Indonesia. The age limit is 17 – 35 years. Email Donny for further information.

We Can Do first learned about this leadership camp through the free Disabled People International’s email newsletter.

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
