For each President's two-year term, we support a charity. Sean Rice has chosen The Pyjama Foundation.
The Pyjama Foundation provides children and young people in foster care the opportunity to change the direction of their lives with learning, life skills and confidence.
Through our 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
Children in care have the lowest education outcomes nationally. By improving their learning skills, we are making a positive, life-long impact.
