Friends of JEF financed the JEF solidarity fund for travels

For many years the high travel costs to attend JEF Europe’s statutory meetings created a barrier for attendance for members of our Eastern European sections and individual members from disadvantaged economical backgrounds. Thanks to the support from Friends of JEF we could introduce a solidarity fund for which delegates and guests can apply and receive a contribution to their expenses, enabling their participation. About ten members made use of that opportunity which enabled the high number of 24 out 30 sections present at our last FC meeting in Stockholm and Turku.
