Australian womenswear brand Homebodii has partnered with the Pyjama Foundation to launch a workshop to support young teenagers in foster care with self-confidence and life skills.

In a statement, Homebodii said that it planned to hold workshops every few months to continue their support for the foundation.

The first workshop will feature a range of guest speakers including former television presenter Natalie Gruzlewski, radio host Heather Maltman and fitness expert Sophie Guidolin.

Homebodii founder Ingrid Bonnor said the opportunity to work with the group was important for the company's goal of inspiring young women.

“We are very excited to be supporting The Pyjama Foundation with workshops that will not only educate, but inspire young women.”

The Pyjama foundation provides children in foster care with support to help them in aspects of empowerment, learning and everyday skills.

Pyjama Foundation founder Bronwyn Sheehan said she was grateful for the work done by Homebodii to help launch the workshop.

“Workshops such as this which promote a sense of self-worth and all these young women to hear from other inspiring women are absolutely priceless.”

The program comes as part of a larger initiative called the “Love of Learning Program” which matches volunteer mentors with a child in care to focus on learning-based activities.
