The Right to Play: How the Recent Fiesta Carnival Brought Childhope and Binibining Pilipinas 2024 Together

Manila, Philippines – On April 25, 2024, the vibrant spirit of camaraderie and joy filled the air as the official candidates of the 60th Binibining Pilipinas pageant shared a heartwarming day with the child beneficiaries of Childhope Philippines at the Araneta City’s Fiesta Carnival. This enchanting gathering not only highlighted the contestants’ dedication to making a positive impact but also showcased the true essence of beauty with a purpose.

The Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. (BPCI) invited the non-government organization’s child beneficiaries as part of its efforts on children’s welfare for the pageant’s diamond year. Diane Romero, Executive Director of J. Amado Araneta Foundation, said that advocating for children has always been BPCI’s direction, reassuring the public that the Binibinis are going to be more involved in charitable works and advocacy campaigns.

The Right to Play: 60th Binibining Pilipinas Bets Spend a Day with Childhope Beneficiaries

Forty street children of ages 7 to 12, along with the 40 Binibinis, enjoyed various kinds of attractions at the Fiesta Carnival, Araneta City’s iconic indoor amusement park that reopened in 2023. These included the merry-go-round, bump cars, go-kart, roller skate rink, and the modern trampoline part. Each child was paired with an Ate (a Binibining Pilipinas candidate) so that the Binibinis could look after the children while enjoying the activities they wanted to try. Even before their playing time, the Binibinis handed out school supply bags to the children.

To help them replenish their energy in between and after the fun-filled activities, they were all treated to refreshing snacks and lunch to put a memorable cap-off to the worthwhile day they spent together.

How Does the Invitation Impact the Children in Street Situations?

The invitation, extended by the BPCI to Childhope’s child beneficiaries, has a profound impact on children in street situations. Firstly, such an invitation provides these children with a rare and valuable opportunity to experience joy and excitement in a safe and nurturing environment. For many street children, daily life is fraught with uncertainty and hardship. Therefore, an event filled with fun activities and positive interactions allows them to simply enjoy being children. This exposure to a festive atmosphere can significantly boost their spirits and overall mental well-being.

Moreover, interacting with the Binibining Pilipinas candidates can serve as a powerful source of inspiration for these children. The Binibinis, celebrated not only for their beauty but also for their intelligence, compassion, and dedication to various advocacies, present themselves as role models. Seeing these accomplished candidates take an interest in their lives and well-being can instill a sense of self-worth and motivation in the children. It sends a strong message that they too can aspire to achieve great things. This encounter can ignite hope and ambition, encouraging them to pursue their dreams and work towards a brighter future.

Additionally, the invitation fosters a sense of belonging and community for the children. Many street children often feel marginalized and neglected by society. Being welcomed and celebrated at such an event shows them that they are valued members of the community. This inclusion helps to build their confidence and social skills, which are crucial for their overall development and future integration into society. By bridging the gap between different societal segments, such events promote empathy, understanding, and support for vulnerable children, ultimately contributing to their empowerment and betterment.
