What is le Mois de la Francophonie ?
March 20 is the Journée internationale de la Francophonie, as established by the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie.
For years now AFMSP has taken that day and expanded it to an entire month of events centering a Francophone country beyond France.
In 2019, we are delighted to focus on Morocco!
