National Pyjama Day has returned and is more significant than ever. National Pyjama Day falls on the 22nd of July this year. National Pyjama Day allows you to join us in supporting the educational and social outcomes of children living in foster care. It’s even more fun if you wear your favorite PJs!
Take a look back at the history of National Pyjama Day…
Did you know 92% of the children in care are below-average readers by seven years old? It can be difficult for them to catch up with their peers.
In 2004, the Pyjama Foundation was founded to support children in foster care in learning, confidence, and life skills. We aim to improve children’s physical health, social-emotional well-being, and learning outcomes in foster care.
How can we help little children with big dreams? The Love of Learning Program connects needy children to our amazing volunteers, the ‘Pyjama Angels.’ The Love of Learning Program supports children in care through evidence-based literacy programs and numeracy in an out-of-school environment. Our program supports over 1440 kids each week. In the last year of Love of Learning, we trained 949 Pyjama Angels and read more than 101,000 books to kids.
