The association INFO-DRÁČEK z.s. was created from the need to convey to the Vietnamese living in the Czech Republic basic information about life in this country, in a simple and understandable form. One of the main objectives of the association is to help bridge the communication gap for all ages and through various activities developed, Vietnamese residents to integrate fully into society Czech Republic.
An important goal of the association is the mutual understanding of cultures, thinking and way of life, living habits, access to different life situations. Vietnamese community living in the Czech Republic open Czech society, which can be seen especially in the Vietnamese growing up here, who are more inclined towards European values. The association is seeking as part of its activities to increase visibility of the Vietnamese, the involvement of the Czech part of our society in such activities and to create mutual understanding between two different cultures.
The Association also provides for strong family ties and a close relationship with the children, immediate family members.

We believe the association INFO-DRÁČEK Z.S. finds its way to all who have an interest in maintaining good relations and a view of the Vietnamese to Czech residents and vice versa. For many Vietnamese living in Czech Republic it is not only a second home, but their first home. We believe that the Vietnamese in the Czech Republic will not forget where their origin root, keep your culture and also can accept the rules of the country in which they have decided to live.
