ON OWN FEET
"CHILDREN WITH LOVE - CHILDREN FOR PEACE"
Movement „On Own Feet“ is recognized as a fully voluntary humanitarian and peace organization, in which children help other children. It was founded by Czech living in Norway, Mrs. Bela Gran Jensen.
There are thousands of children and hundreds of teachers from the Czech schools working in the movement today. It has its roots in Slovakia, Poland, Norway and Canada as well. The children draw Christmas cards and earn money during the Centipede weeks to help ill children and children in need, not only in the Czech Republic, but also all around the world.
The Centipede movement has its patrons among important Czech and world personalities. The General Staff of the Czech Army, Ministry of Defense of the Czech Republic and the soldiers from the Czech peace troops contribute significantly to the activities of the Movement.
The work of Mrs. Jensen and the Centipede children has been awarded many times.
