Accessible Accommodations for two African experts
We are looking for your financial support or/and alternative contribution in enabling 1) Sefakor's access to hotel and transportation by wheelchair from 27 June to 2 July in Basel, estimated cost of CHF 1500 and 2) Ambrose's access to keynote lectures, roundtable discussions and panel presentation in the form of CART (real time captioning services) at an estimated cost of CHF 7500.
If we reach the first target of CHF 5000, we can support Sefakor's wheelchair accessible hotel and transportation costs as well as real-time captioning service for one and a half days of the conference for Ambrose.
Actually, considering the fees, I would word it thus: If we reach our goal of CHF 10000, we will be able to support real-time captioning for all three days of the conference, wheelchair accessibility and possibly accommodations for the cultural program taking place in the evenings.
You can join the barrier-free project with financial support for two experts and/or with an alternative contribution (i.e. offering accessible accommodation for Sefakor or offering your professional services/technological know-how to support captioning services for Ambrose).
Transportation from the airport as well as to cultural events taking place in the evening are invaluable to ensure Sefakor’s full participation.
We are volunteers who are responsible for barrier-free access to the European Conference on African Studies (ECAS 2017) taking place this year in Basel, Switzerland. We are working to ensure that two visiting experts/panelists from Ghana and Uganda with specific needs have full access to the Conference.
