Roots of Change is a storytelling platform dedicated to the Alumni community of The Funding Network Australia. Here we share their stories of ingenuity, courage, determination, spirit, growth and the impact these grassroots organisations have had, as a direct result of funds and support received from The Funding Network community.

The Pyjama Foundation

The Pyjama Foundation

The Pyjama Foundation was founded in 2004 to give children in foster care the opportunity to change the direction of their lives with learning, life skills, and confidence.

Through its Love of Learning program, volunteers called Pyjama Angels are matched with a child in foster care, and spend one hour a week focusing on learning-based activities such as reading, playing educational games and helping children with their homework. Beyond educational support, this approach helps to create a meaningful, trusting relationship with the child.


2019 Pitch
Funds raised: $87,438

At TFN Sydney in September 2019, Bronwyn was pitching for funds to make a difference in the lives of young children living in foster care. The funds raised would be used to screen, recruit and train more volunteers to support foster children in Sydney.
