The Pyjama Foundation was created to provide children in care with a world full of unlimited opportunity, to create positive relationships, and instil a love of learning.
Volunteer 'Pyjama Angel' mentors provide one-on-one support to children in care by visiting them once a week to empower them with learning, life skills and confidence to reach their full potential.
Empowerment of children
We are committed to the safety, participation and empowerment of all children. Like adults, children have human rights; this includes the right to special protection because of their vulnerability to exploitation and abuse. The main international human rights treaty on children’s rights is the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). The CRC is the most widely ratified human rights treaty in the world, signed by Australia in December 1990. This means that Australia has a duty to ensure that all children enjoy the rights set out in the treaty. Click here to read more about the CRC.
