Join the Joy Movement – it’s for everyone who cares and dares to make a difference in South Africa and the world by bringing more love and kindness to humankind.
We’re on the UP, and you can be too!
Become a Joy Catalyst – here’s how!
The UP’s vision is to grow a Joy Movement throughout South Africa and the world by sharing Love and Acts of Remarkable Kindness.
Since 2003, The UP has been developing tools of UPliftment, offering training to facilitators who want to UPlift our society in Hospitals, Schools, Prisons, Businesses and Communities.
- Care Clowning is for individuals, groups and families that want to be Joy Activists here in Southern Africa. We train you, support you and welcome you to the growing Joy Family. With 15 hours of training and a 1 hour commitment per week/month, you too can be ‘On the UP’
- At the start of 2014, the UP began their first ever global joy campaign: “#hula4love”, creating virtual circles of love around the world through the logging of minutes that folk hula-hooped and then converting those minutes into virtual kilometres that create circles of love around our world. The first circle of love around the world has just been completed. Over 40500kms have been logged by schools, communities and individuals around the world. Our next goal is at least 10 circles by February 2015.
- Become a Joy Catalyst in our Train the Trainer Programme for High Schools. Our facilitators are trained to support teachers to discipline adolescents in a positive way by using cooperative games, fun and play in order to create a more harmonious learning environment.
- Book a JOY SESSION for your team with award winning actress and joy catalyst Nicola Jackman.
Our mission is to collaborate with others that are developing tools for emotional wellness and personal development and extend UPliftment programmes throughout South African communities. If you would like to support through donations, collaborations or participation in other ways Please Join UP
