UNESCO Bangkok, Asia-Pacific Regional Network for Early Childhood (ARNEC), Asia South Pacific Association for Basic and Adult Education (ASPBAE) and UNICEF East Asia and Pacific Regional Office (EAPRO) as the organizing agencies of the Photo and Drawing Contest 2012 on the occasion of Global Action week from 22-28 April 2012, are pleased to release the list of the winners of the above mentioned contest.

This year’s Global Action Week ran under the theme of “Early Childhood Care and Education” touching the most critical period in human development. It is when children’s brain develops the most rapidly and where strong socio-emotional support from caregivers, adequate nutrition, good health care and a safe and stimulating environment can help them achieve their fullest potential.

Children are active learners from birth, and the early years are vital to their success in school and later in life. Quality early childhood care and education (ECCE) significantly contributes to the development and learning of children, prepares them for school, and sets a good foundation for life.
