De Bruin Enterprise supports The Pyjama Foundation

The Pyjama Foundation is a children’s charity that is breaking the cycle of disadvantage experienced by Australian children in foster care.

The Pyjama Foundation recruits, screens, trains and supports Pyjama Angels – volunteer members of the community who work with the children and support our true heroes – Australia’s foster families.

  • 92% of children in care are below the average reading level at age seven[1]
  • 75% of these children do not complete schooling
  • 50% of the homeless come from a care background
  • 35% enter the juvenile justice system at some point (82% of Australian prisoners have below grade 4 level of functional literacy)
  • 28% of care-leavers are parents within 12 months of leaving care

There are more than 37,000 children in care in Australia, a figure which doubled in the last decade. Indigenous children are vastly over-represented.

Research shows that any improvement in literacy and numeracy skills will have a positive impact on a person’s life.

Since inception in 2004, the organisation and its founder have inspired more than 1000 members of our community to become volunteer Pyjama Angels, visiting a child in care each week to read books, play games, and engage in other fun, learning-based activities.
