I kindly request funding to support participation at the WFUNA International Model United Nations in New York, USA on the 30th of January to the 2nd of February 2019.

International Model United Nations (WIMUN), an accurate simulation of the United Nations in the world is an educational and academic simulation of diplomatic decision making a teaches Students whom would be called "Delegates", researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, teamwork, and cultural empathy.

W.F.U.N.A. aims to precisely simulate the U.N. in Model UN programs and provide the most realistic experience possible of the UN and its organs. The WIMUN program features intensive training workshops taught by UN officials, briefings on important agenda items by UN Agencies, and a conference session in the heart of New York City.

As a student of politics it would be a great opportunity for me to participate in such an event as a way of not only investing in my future in the field of international relations but an investment in the future of South Africa’s international relations. As we celebrated the centenary of President Nelson Mandela with a successfully bid for a seat In the United Nations Security Council I have no doubt in mind that one day South Africa will receive a permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council to serve the interests of the African Bloc, and when that happens the Republic of South Africa must have capable young people ready to take on the new role in the international community. 

The Costs involved for me to attend the Model UN in New York;

  • Delegate fee R 2873
  • Accommodation at the Grand Hyatt New York R 9574
  • Return Flight to New York R13000
  • Health insurance (6 days) R105
  • Meals and transport R 5000
