First Sunday Club - The Pyjama Foundation

By Rebecca Sparrow and the First Sunday Club

This month the First Sunday Club will be raising money to help train FOUR  new Pyjama Angels for the Pyjama Foundation.

What's the Pyjama Foundation?  Glad you asked!

The Pyjama Foundation  provides children in foster care the opportunity to change the direction of their lives.

Through the Love of Learning program, volunteers called ‘Pyjama Angels’ are recruited, screened, trained and then matched with a child in care and spend time with them once a week, focusing on learning-based activities.

Pyjama Angels read books aloud with their child, play educational games and help children with their homework. Most importantly, the volunteers give foster children a chance to reach their life potential, despite a fragile start. It costs $1000 to train a Pyjama Angel.

Children in care have the lowest education outcomes nationally. By improving their learning skills, The Pyjama Foundation is making a positive, life-long impact.Pyjama Angels visit a child’s home for an hour a week, creating a positive relationship, while reading, playing educational games, helping with homework, and engaging them with life skills. We aim to provide fun and unique experiences that make children in care feel special and look forward to the weekly visit of their Pyjama Angel.

Over time, a Pyjama Angel becomes a trusted mentor and an additional positive influence in the child’s life. Pyjama Angels support the work of the carers by working towards common goals for the child and help alleviate some of the pressures they experience.

So that's our goal this month!  If you can spare $5 -- please do. And together let's be a force for good and see if we can help get more Pyjama Angels trained and into the homes of children in foster care.
