UNICEF Auction for Action 3 to Fund Supervised Neighborhood Play Program

Studies in the Philippines show that only three out ten children have access to daycare and any form of learning.

Yesterday, I was invited to the sneak preview of UNICEF Philippines 3rd Auction for Action at the Yuchengco Museum at the RCBC Tower in Makati where I was able to see the lust-worthy items up for auction to benefit a unique education program that will provide children access to early learning via Supervised Neighborhood Play Program.

UNICEF believes that Supervised Neighborhood Play (SNP) is a simple,low-cost and easy to organize home-based early learning program where trained day care workers or parent volunteers gather young children in a house, a shaded lay area or under a tree for two to three hours, everyday for at least ten months to help children learn through organized play.  UNICEF supports SNP program in remote, conflict, or disaster-affected communities and informal settlers located in urban and rural areas.

Parents are generally unaware that various forms of play actually keeps children healthy and sharpen a child’s skill in listening, self-expression, observation and other skills for beginning literacy.   Playing both structured and unstructured, lays foundation for a child’s development and confidence, develop language skills, thinking, planning, organizing and decision-making.  Children learn language quickly and easily through hearing and singing songs, having stories told or read to them, repeating rhymes and playing games.

With all these said, I definitely am excited to bid for any item I can afford!  There are just so many lust-worthy items you can bid for at this auction. Here’s just some of the items that caught my fancy!

I was immediately drawn by the SIGNED books by the authors themselves!
