Menm Biten Menm Bagay aka MBMB

The French Caribbean Association is a voluntary organisation

created in 1996 in London.

“Menm Biten Menm Bagay” is a Creole idiomatic expression which means “Same difference”

Our friends from Guiana have played an important role within the association from the onset therefore

we have twisted this idiom slightly to reflect our dynamycs, to read: “Menm Biten Menm Bagay Menm Bet”

The meaning remaining “Same Difference”.

Since November 2004, we are a registered charity (Charity commission number: 1106915).
