For over a century, the Alliance Française has been seeing through an ambitious project: Spreading French language and culture well beyond the borders of France. A network of associations set up throughout the world have been benefiting from the Alliance’s mark of quality so as to disseminate the French language abroad. The remarkable longevity and vitality of our institution is due in part to the strong bonds we have built with the citizens, the sponsors of our host country and with the French State. All of the Alliance’s activities (cultural or otherwise), as well as its status as a non-profit association account for some of the ingredients of the Alliance’s current success.
