La Francophonie Fête ses 50 ans
At the instigation of the founding fathers of La Francophonie, Léopold Sédar Senghor, Habib Bourguiba and Hamani Diori, the Agency for Cultural and Technical Cooperation (ACCT) was founded on 20 March 1970, with the aim of placing the French language at the service of solidarity, development and rapprochement between peoples. It has since evolved into the International Organization of the Francophonie.
Today the Francophonie brings together 88 states and governments, 300 million Francophones around the world and 132 million learners of and in French.
The Alliance Française de Nairobi will celebrate the 50th anniversary of La Francophonie by highlighting the value of the French language in the arts, science and literature.
