To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Francophonie, FNK has planned days similar to this one where the young people of this village, Mitahato, will have the opportunity to meet people from different French-speaking countries around the world, to exchange with them about the French language, and to learn about their cultures and habits but also to share with them their own culture and languages.
