Hi, My name's Duy. I am 24 and from Saigon, Vietnam. I describe myself an enthusiast in youth volunteering activities. At present, I am one member of Vietnam Youth Forum (VYF), a non-profit organization that promotes local impact through volunteer campaign.
COY11 stands for 11th Conference of Youth which will take place in Paris this November, COY is gathering youth people around the world with purpose to present the youth voice before the COP every year. Young people know about the limits of our model of society, and they are ready to start a paradigm shift to pave the way to a more sustainable and desirable society.
WHY MY STORY TO COME TO PARIS FOR COY11
I have never been in any similar conferences but youth and the awareness of youth power that bring more goodness to reality is one of my concerns, In COY11, participants can trade ideas and learn many applicable lessons to their own communities. So I think my presence could be a benefit for what I have been doing and for VYF. COY11 has selected me to participate in, thus I need being responsible for coming to learn and commit to bring skill, experience, knowledge... to help my community back in Saigon. You may check under is my invitation letter form COY11
Working as youth activist not only needs deep knowledge but also wide relationship and support from the others. It leads the need of youth activist who must expert in their field. This circumstance leads me to COY11
WHY SHOULD YOU HELP ME?
Like all good things, I need to overcome 1 big obstacle to COY11, it is cost for the trip. I am from a family of limited financial situation and can not afford for the ticket, accommodation and transportation in France, It seems a big deal for me.
Thus, I start this campaign on hoping to receive your help to facilitate me to fulfill my dream with COY11. The amount of cost that I estimate for this trip is about 2500$ - 2800$. For detail, it may be 1000$ for a return ticket between my city Saigon and Paris; 700$ for hotel, food, transportation in France for 5-7 days, 300$ for material for my project and campaign, 200$ for visa and its application procedure and 300$-600$ in case of emergencies.
If 300 people come together to give me 10$ each before the end of September. We would have done this together.
I believe in you, in me and in every moments I strive for that.
Thank you so so much in advance for your contribution to my campaign. You now have my deepest gratitude.
You can contact me by email [email protected] if you prefer a transfer or direct deposit.
I feel so honored with the opportunity to represent my country in a multinational event in Paris and I count on you to make it happen!
