On 3 July 2018, the FEDE was officially accredited by La Francophonie and now holds consultative status with the organisation. Reputed for their experience and expertise, INGOs accredited by La Francophonie play an important role in promoting French-speaking culture across the world.
The FEDE has already been awarded the Swiss government’s Eduqua label and is recognised by the Fédération des Entreprises et Entrepreneurs de France and the Moroccan Fédération Nationale de l’Industrie Hôtelière. Many FEDE qualifications are also registered with France’s Commission Nationale de la Certification Professionnelle. Accreditation by La Francophonie further reinforces our international standing and reputation.
Since 1970 La Francophonie, which currently has 84 Member States, has been working to promote active solidarity between French-speaking nations sharing universal values of democracy and respect for human rights. Every two years La Francophonie organises a Conference of NGOs and INGOs, during which participating organisations are invited to share their views on the policies, programmes and activities of the organisation.
Claude Vivier Le Got, Chairwoman of the FEDE, has been invited to the upcoming Conference, which will take place from 12-14 September 2018 in Yerevan, Armenia. The theme will be ‘Living together in solidarity, sharing humanist values and respect for diversity: a source of peace and prosperity in the French-speaking world’ (‘Vivre ensemble dans la solidarité, le partage des valeurs humanistes et le respect de la diversité : source de paix et de prospérité pour l’espace francophone’ ).
