JOYFUL MOVEMENT FOR THE UPliftment
of BODY, mind & HEART


Established in late 2003, we are socio-emotional upliftment programme, focused on bringing much needed joy to marginalised communities. We professionally train joy facilitators and catalysts and support them to bring joy sessions to the communities who need it most.

For 16 years we've been sharing joy in hospitals and homes throughout South Africa.
Adapting to health and safety needs, we are merging our physical sessions with online virtual sessions, to enhance and sustain the joy and creative expression experiences we are giving the youth and children

It’s our vision to have a world where the general emotional state of being is Uplifting and inspiring where human kind practices being both human and kind. We are co-creating a movement of joy throughout Southern Africa and the world.

SUPPORT US TO GROW A JOYFUL, CREATIVE AND INSPIRING NEW GENERATION OF SOUTH AFRICANS

We are not just having fun, we are carefully growing innovative and creative lifeskills with these children and youth

Sponsor our program running from January to November. For these 11 months you'll support regular twice per month tailored joy sessions, guided by our professionally trained joy facilitators. With each session, they'll laugh, dance and play as they learn our 16 years developed joy tools in fun and dynamic life altering way. .


JOY TO THE WORLD!

Legally we are a The UPliftment Programme - (aka The UP) - we are registered Not for Profit Organisation 122-357 NPO & PBO 930018482 founded in 2003... our beneficiaries are predominantly youth and children from previously disadvantaged communities.

Through our arts activities we uplift and bring joy. Sharing joy supports the well-being & recuperation of children in hospitals and homes and our volunteers and facilitators also are uplifted through this exchange as they learn the beauty of service and kindness.

You can sUPport us, either by donating money or time - by becoming a Care Clown or Joy Catalyst and or offering your skills to help us grow UP.

"Bliss is the gift you receive when you share joy with another" Nicola Jackman (founder and cheer/chairlady of The UP)
