Founded as a branch of B-XB2717 - World Family Organization (WFO). Became more autonomous and set itself up as an independent organization in 1968. In 1979, became legally constituted with emphasis on autonomous and democratic structure, but retaining privileged contacts with IUFO, particularly its European region.
Build a Europe more broadly based and permanent than simply a common market; represent both families and children who cannot speak for themselves; safeguard and promote interests of families within the European Union, such that each household is free to choose the way it wants to live; promote an EU family policy to provide the social, economic and cultural environment within which families may carry out their human and social responsibilities.
