PARTNERSHIP WITH THE ORGANISATION INTERNATIONALE DE LA FRANCOPHONIE (OIF)
With 274 million French-speakers around the world, the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF) aims to create active solidarity between the 80 French-speaking States and governments – over a third of the Member States in the United Nations. Its objective is contributing to improving the lives of these peoples by helping them become key players in their own development.
Operating across five continents, the OIF initiates political and cooperative action in all areas that involve the French language and cultural and linguistic diversity; education and training; sustainable development and solidarity. The OIF is particularly attentive to young people and women in its global actions.
As part of her partnership with the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF), the Hermione takes close to 100 young people from French-speaking countries aboard as volunteer boatswains.
