What is Alliance française de Kampala?
Created in 1954, Alliance française de Kampala is a Ugandan non-profit association recognised by law. It boasts of about 2000 students every year and organizes various cultural events (concerts, expositions...). It is linked to the Alliance française de Paris. As any association, a specific number of members forms the General assembly and elects an admnistrative committee.
The vocation is to promote French-speaking and Ugandan cultures and to favour exchanges between Uganda and France. Besides, it is charged by the Embassy of France to operate a part of the cultural action of the French representation.
