Bronwyn Sheehan founded The Pyjama Foundation in 2004 to make a positive impact on the lives of our community’s most vulnerable children. A nurse and midwife and business owner, Bronwyn was inspired by the work of Foster Carers. Bronwyn was alarmed at statistics highlighting the poor literacy and numeracy levels of children in care, and she was determined to find a way to address this issue. This was the beginning of The Pyjama Foundation Love of Learning Program. Bronwyn’s mission is to help break the cycle of disadvantage often experienced by children in care. Bronwyn’s recent achievements include being awarded Queensland Australian of the Year 2009 and Telstra Businesswoman of the Year national finalist 2008.
