Join Our Campaign: Encouraging Kenya to Join the International Organization of Francophone States!


The Francophone Network of Kenya warmly invites all Kenyans who have a passion for the French language to join our campaign, which aims to encourage Kenya to become a member of the International Organization of Francophone States (known as Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie or OIF). We are inspired by Ghana, as they have recently joined this esteemed organization.


Currently, the OIF has 88 member states, including countries like Ghana and Ireland, which are traditionally English-speaking nations. Becoming a member of this organization would provide Kenya with vast opportunities in the global arena, creating more jobs for our youth. Many countries have greatly benefited from their membership in the OIF.


In Kenya, thousands of individuals have already learned or are currently learning the French language, in addition to English. If Kenya becomes an OIF member, alongside our existing membership in the Commonwealth, we would unlock significant new avenues in employment, higher education, and cultural advancement. With the world becoming a global village, it is crucial for our country to take advantage of international associations that promote the welfare of our youth and explore untapped opportunities.


The OIF assists its member states by promoting French language learning in schools, professional settings, and trade. It also fosters beneficial exchanges among member countries. Kenya stands to gain immensely by promoting the French language alongside English and Swahili. The recent entry of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) into the East African Community further emphasizes the need for Kenya to embrace La Francophonie and encourage French language education at all levels. With a population of over 80 million people, the DRC is set to be a game-changer in East Africa, and those who are proficient in both English and French will reap maximum benefits from this new development. From Rwanda to Burundi, people are now able to function in both English and French. In fact, a Rwandese woman currently leads the OIF globally. Burundi, being traditionally French-speaking, is even considering adding English as an optional language in East Africa. Recently, the East African Community has begun discussions on making French one of its official languages.


We  believe that Kenya will not need much convincing to join the OIF, as our country is already committed to promoting foreign languages, as evidenced by the inclusion of foreign languages in the new school curriculum.
