ASP Diliman Chapter Bazaar Experience

By: Josephine Palomares, ASP Diliman Chapter President

Mothers of children with autism
from ASP Diliman Chapter took on the challenge to do business together with their special kids through ‘Tiange for Autism’ at Eton Centris, Quezon City.



The ASP Diliman Chapter "Tiange for Autism"


According to ASP Diliman Chapter President, Josephine Palomares, the objectives of activity are 1) to expose children with autism to ‘retail’ work and 2) to establish a ‘working’ relationship among parent-members.


The tiange was an interesting experience. For one month, one parent-member accommodated the stall for the tiange use. Waking up early at 5:30 in the morning on a Sunday is a challenge in itself. But the kids enjoyed being in the bazaar and helped sell items bags, pins, clothes, shawls, plane magnets, towels, stickers, bracelets, and muscovado sugar until pack-up time at 2pm.



The one month experience was hard work, but everyone had a lot of fun. The children with autism were exposed to entrepreneurial skills; while the parents learned team work.

Special thanks to all the "tiangge moms" of ASP Diliman Chapter: Baby Tan, Juliet Yusay, Aileen Valera and to those who supported the bazaar, Atty. Rose Dacanay, Ton Reyes and Shirley Quintela.
