Special Attendance Fund – SAF






Click here for information in International Sign

What is SAF?
Sign language interpreters from all around Europe gather once a year at the efsli AGM and Conference to exchange experiences, share knowledge and gain expertise.
To guarantee that European sign language interpreters also from countries with a low GDP can participate in the AGM and conference, efsli set up the efsli Special Attendance Fund (saf) in 2004.
saf provides financial support primarily to interpreters from European countries with a GDP of € 15.000 or lower. Interpreters from other European countries also are very welcome to apply for a funding. For details see the guide to application.
The Special Attendance Fund depends on donations.
