The Alliance Française Foundation is the ethical and legal yardstick for the Alliance Française network. When an Alliance Française centre is set up, it applies to the Foundation for recognition, through the approval of its memorandum and articles of association. In case the centre intends to expand, it asks for advice from the Foundation. When it needs training for its staff, it enjoys the support of the Foundation. The Foundation encourages good governance in the Alliance Française centers. It has experts in geographical zones, who can take the right steps and give advice to an Alliance Française centre when it is faced with challenges.
