How your donation helps kids in care
The aim of National Pyjama Day to raise as much funds as possible for The Pyjama Foundation's Love of Learning Program which is offered to children in foster care.
Donations go towards providing children their very own special Pyjama Angel mentor who empowers them with learning, life skills and confidence to change the direction of their life.
Love of Learning Program
Volunteers, known as ‘Pyjama Angels’, are screened, trained, recruited and then matched with a child in Foster Care. Together, they spend an hour a week reading books aloud, playing educational games and engaging in fun activities.
A Pyjama Angel’s role is to provide consistent friendship and support, and most importantly, instil a love of learning in children.
Currently there are more than 45,000 children currently in Foster Care in Australia.
Why we need your help more than ever
92% of children in care have below average reading skills by the time they are 7 years old
75 of children are not completing high school
35% of children in care are entering the juvenile justice system
The Pyjama Foundation’s Love of Learning Program has proven to be an effective solution, as it supports children in care to form and sustain healthy adult attachments, relationships, gain improved educational success and increase their confidence.
Pyjama Angels give a Foster Child the chance to find their wings and reach their life potential, despite a fragile start.
