The global COVID-19 pandemic has meant that families have not travelled to London for my summer camp. Needing help to get to 2021.

Mine is a tiny business that fell through the cracks for UK government help. I run my business from my home in Camden and have been running Jazzitup Kids for a long time. I have given it my all and I am passionate about educating young people creatively and hugely inspired by the late Sir Ken Robinson.

Having moved to Italy 20 years ago with a baby and realising the lack of English taught creatively, I invented a character, Jazzy the Juggler - a blue creature who fell from the stars and the protagonist - and  idea for a creative teaching English language through performing arts programme to children with English as a second language.

"Thank you so much for this camp! Vasyl was so excited and inspired every day of the camp! Many thanks to you and your team. You are really wonderful!" Anton, from Ukraine

I have been touched and overwhelmed with the outpouring of thank you’s from parents with kids who have attended my summer camp. Children from all over the world come year after year to our workshops in central London schools, where they are taught by a great team (teachers, actors and young people doing work experience).

We offer a theme a day with matching off site excursions, giving kids a live, active language learning experience. We pretty much cover London, offering workshops at all the smaller museum/theatre venues and a healthy contribution to the arts all over London.

"Thank you so much for giving Mouteb such a wonderful week. He loved it so much that he is desperate to do another.." Paul Eedle form the Syrian Refugee Commission.

We offer places to kids from the Syrian refugee commission. 

The content, the stories, the songs, lyrics and creative are forever expanding. Jazzitup Kids' running costs include mammoth summer planning, with things organised and paid well in advance. 

Summer 2020 has been a disaster for Jazzitup Kids. I have kept it going by teaching online but this is not sufficient to cover the coming year. I am therefore urgently asking for your support — however much or little you can afford — for this project run with great love and passion. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see our Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
