Ghana Set To Host Francophonie Week 2015

As every year, the Francophone Embassies in Ghana are organising various events to celebrate the Francophonie in Ghana. If, as a tradition, culture and the French language will be honored, this year festival’s edition will focus on the Francophone’s economic weight in the world.

This year, the events will take place from the 13th to the 28th of March, mainly at Alliance Française and at the National Theatre (see full program below and attached to this email in the word document).

The term “Francophonie” refers to all of the states and governments worldwide who share the French language. The International Organisation of La Francophonie, created in 1970, represents one of the biggest linguistic zones in the world.

Its mission is to embody the active solidarity between its 77 member states and governments (57 members and 20 observers), which together represent over one-third of the United Nations’ member states and account for a population of over 890 million people, including 220 million French speakers.

IOF organizes political activities alongside the four main missions which it has been assigned:

ü To promote the French language, cultural and linguistic diversity,

ü To promote peace, democracy and Human Rights
ü To support education, training, higher education institutions and research

ü To foster cooperation in favour of sustainable development.

Its head office is in Paris, France.
Ghana holds the status of International Organization of La Francophonie associated member since 2006.

Francophonie in Ghana, country surrounded by Francophone countries, represents a unique opportunity for students, artists, business men and teachers to have opportunities and develop partnerships with francophone communities.
