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.
