The Alliance Française today is present in 133 countries, with 850 committees and 800 schools. Each year, more than 500 000 students attend for lessons. Everywhere, it brings together lovers of French language and culture and works alongside other cultural institutions.
Founded in 2007, the Fondation Alliance française aims to :
- develop the teaching and the usage of the French language;
- contribute to increase the intellectual and moral influence of France, and the interest in all French speaking countries' cultures;
- enhance cultural exchanges and cultural diversity;
Locally, each Alliance française is a non profit-making, non religious and non political association under local law.
