How? For every 8 paying Youth Individual Member (YIM), the WFDYS will be able to support one participant from developing country to one of WFDYS three WFDYS camps (WFDYS Children, WFDYS Junior and WFDYS camps). For example, if we have 24 Youth Individual Members (YIMs) then we will be able to send 4 participants from developing countries.

Basically, you are allowing participants from developing countries to learn so much about networking and to exchange knowledge and experience with all kinds of countries all over the world. It will also provide them invaluable opportunities to learn about sign languages, culture, history and about the ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
