The UP has a vision for the future: to bring smiles and laughter to all. This truly unique NGO uses clowning, fun and performance art to uplift and empower children in need -  in orphanages & hospitals. Bringing the healing power of love and joy to where it is needed most.

On the  11 February 2010, in the true spirit of Valentines day, Nikki and her team of volunteer JOY activists – Care Clowns and magicians, brought love and laughter to the children of Masiphumalele’s LOVE & CARE Day Centre.

Started in 2003 by Nikki Jackman, the UP has grown to over 50 volunteers who share joy and love with over 3 500 children every month. To become part of the JOY movement visit their [WEBSITE](http://www.up.givengain.org)
