The Pyjama Foundation was founded in 2004 to give children in foster care the opportunity to change the direction of their lives with learning life skills and confidence.
Alarmed at the statistics highlighting poor literacy and numeracy levels of children in care, and how this contributes to a lifetime of disadvantage, founder Bronwyn Sheehan made a decision - a decision to offer hope and a more positive outlook for these children.
Through a simple program known as the Love of Learning Program, volunteers called Pyjama Angels are matched with a child in care, and spend just one hour a week focusing on learning based activities. Pyjama Angels read books aloud, play educational games, and help children with their homework. In that time, they demonstrate that this child is valued and loved.
There is no physical office in Victoria so please either get in touch with our Volunteer Coordinator in Victoria or our Queensland Head Office.
