The FNK is an organisation that is made up mainly of young Kenyan volunteers who want to change their lives by creating new educational, career, business and professional opportunities by exploring the rich Francophone world, which they can only do by learning French.

  4. To promote the use of the French language throughout Kenya and introduce Kenyans to the rich Francophone culture, history and the arts
