Short history – when is founded, important changes, the goal, mission, vision:

Federation of Orphanages CR was founded in 1960 as a “National Association of Orphanages ČSSR”. Subsequently, it was entrusted with the organization of the 1962 international congress in Prague, which took place again in 1990. It continued to work on a federal basis until 1992, when it was divided into Czech and Slovak sections due to the national split of Czechoslovakia.

The above-described activity develops the mission of the FICE on a national level. FDD CR also participates in international activities. The entirety of activities of FDD CR has a connection to the development of all forms of educational activities of children placed into surrogate familial childcare, especially of children with an ordered institutional upbringing.
