Student Federation of Ivory Coast

The Student Federation of Ivory Coast (French: Fédération estudiantine et scolaire de Côte d'Ivoire, FESCI) is a youth and student organization in Ivory Coast that aims to protect rights of Ivorian students at school and university.

Founded in the early 1990s as a student union, some members of the association have gone on to be involved in politics. For instance, Guillaume Soro (Secretary general of the FESCI 1995-1998), who has been prime minister of Ivory Coast (2007-2012), is the current President of the National Assembly of Ivory Coast.
