Alliance Française de Kampala

Our Mission: The Alliance Française in Kampala encourages and promotes active, open connections between people in Uganda and French language and culture. It provides the means by which people can learn the French language and become engaged in the many different aspects of French culture including art, books, poetry, film, history, contemporary affairs, thoughts and ideas. It provides the opportunity for friends of French language and culture to come together in an apolitical, non-religious and welcoming environment.
Who Are We?
The Alliances Françaises network
The Alliance Française was created in 1883 in Paris under the aegis of Paul Cambon and Pierre Foncin, around personalities such as Jules Verne, Louis Pasteur, Ferdinand de Lesseps, Armand Colin and Ernest Renan. 
Today, it is the leading cultural network worldwide, with 850 establishments in 136 countries on all five continents. Each year, 500,000 people, of all ages, attend Alliances Françaises to learn French and more than 6 million people participate in their cultural activities. 
The network is coordinated by the Alliance Française Foundation (Fondation Alliance Française).
What is an Alliance Française?
Each Alliance Française is a local not-for-profit organisation operating autonomously with no political or religious commitments.
All Alliances Françaises work towards three essential tasks:
Offering French classes for all around the world
Spreading awareness of French and Francophone culture
Promoting cultural diversity
Alliances Françaises have shared values which drive the network, acting as the basis for all their actions:
Respect for cultural diversity, a passion for exchanges and solidarity
The values of the not-for-profit sector
Striving for excellence in all activities undertaken
Modernity and innovation
The Alliance Française in Kampala (AFK) is part of the worldwide network of all Alliance Françaises.  In Uganda, the Alliance Française was established in 1956 as a non-profit making association. In 2009 it became the linguistic operator for the French Embassy in Uganda.
An expert in its field whereby all the AFK teachers follow regular training in Uganda, the East African Region and in France, to stay up to date in the latest research in education and language skills. The teachers are also habilitated in teacher training and so work closely with the Ugandan French Teachers Association and the French Embassy Linguistic Department.
The only language centre in Uganda accredited to pass exams of the French National Education, Chambre of Commerce and Industry in Paris and French University exams. The Alliance Française in Kampala offers all levels of french lessons for beginners through to advanced, conversation, private, individual, children, business and specialist professions.
