About Kaffed

The Diaspora Circassians are organized around cultural associations and foundations to protect and to develop their unique language and culture.

There are about 80 active Circassian associations in Turkey. Most of these associations have joined together under the Federation of the Caucasian Associations (Kaffed) in 2003. Kaffed member associations are all located in the regions with significant Circassian population.

The Circassian associations established all around the world have formed an umbrella organization, called the International Circassian Association, in Nalchik, Kabardino-Balkar Republic, in 1991. Through its member organizations, the International Circassian Association is represented in the Russian Federation (Adygea, Karachai Cherkess, Kabardino Balkaria, Shapsugh Region, Krasnodar and Moscow), Abkhazia, Turkey, Jordan, Syria, Israel, the EU, the USA.
