The Alliance Française Foundation

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.

An Alliance is the outgrowth of community-based initiatives and reciprocal adhesion, which have been central to its long term success. The Alliance Française attributes its success to the unwavering loyalty of its public who are impassioned by the French language. Known the all over the world, the Alliance is present in 136 countries where it has adapted its recipe to over a thousand local committees, each with its very own personality. The Alliances Françaises are independent associations regulated by local law and bound by a common purpose to the Fondation Alliance Française.

AF Kandy

The Alliance Française Kandy (AFK) is proud to be the second biggest AF of the Sri Lankan network.

Our aim is to promote French culture, as well as to provide a space for intercultural exchanges between Sri Lanka and the cultures of the French-speaking world. The AFK was founded in 1967 and is a French Language and Cultural Centre which also hosts a French Multimedia Library.

In 2017, the AFK celebrated its 50th Anniversary. This is the oldest French Language and Cultural Center in Kandy, preparing to all exams including the O-Level and A-Level.

According to the statutes of the Alliance Française Kandy, the members of the Executive Committee are volunteers. They dedicate some of their free time to the development of the institution. We thank them warmly for their active dedication without which the AFK would not be what it is today.

The Alliance Française is a non-profit organisation. You can support our action and become a member!
