Meet The Team

Welcome to The Pyjama Foundation's Team! Our team is a diverse group hailing from all walks of life, united by a shared mission: to brighten and empower the lives of children and young individuals in out-of-home care. 

Welcome to The Pyjama Foundation's Team!

While we operate within a challenging and sometimes heart-wrenching sector, our primary focus is to bring hope and happiness into the lives that truly matter. At the heart of our efforts is the Love of Learning Program. Our central objective is clear: to elevate the educational and life trajectories of children and young people in foster care. We achieve this with the help of our amazing volunteer mentors who empower children and youth by honing their literacy and numeracy skills, while simultaneously providing them with essential emotional support.
