Le Havre was the capital of Pulaagu on July 4, 2012,  a memorable day of meeting and exchange around the new browser Firefox in Fulah language.

The highlight of the day was undoubtedly the lecture of the American John Hames, researcher and Fulah language specialist, who just joined the Firefox team. Several organizations, many from the Paris region were represented. The association KJPF (Pulaar Fulfulde Kawtal Janngooɓe) was represented by Diaalo Samba Seck; “JAAYRE” association by Ibrahima Kane said KATANTE LEÑOL; JAKKAA FULBE by Abu Kante.
