In 2020, UNSW MedShow is proud to support The Pyjamas Foundation. PJs supports the dreams of kids living in foster care. Whether they want to grow up to be an astronaut or a doctor, The Pyjama Foundation is
there to help them reach their potential by assisting them with their learning, and providing consistent love and support. With a little confidence and encouragement, who knows what these incredible kids can achieve?
Across Australia, there are more than 48,000 children
living in out-of-home care and 162,175 children receiving some form of child protection services. The impact on children at risk, or in care, is severe and long-term. These children have lower educational attainment, lower employment prospects, higher criminal and arrest rates, and higher rates of teen pregnancy.
The Pyjama Foundation is working with one child at a time to change their story and help them reach their full potential in life.
