The 2015 edition of the DSG Annual Charity Bazaar was a great success, raising lots of money while bringing together over 2,000 people to enjoy a fun-filled family day! The bazaar is a unique event in the Dar calendar, allowing people to take a culinary and cultural tour of the planet while staying right here in Dar es Salaam. More than 20 countries were represented at the 2015 bazaar, with food and craft stalls spanning five different continents!

The raffle was once again hugely popular, with over 80 very happy winners taking home prizes ranging from flight tickets to gemstones. Many more were delighted with the bargains they found at the White Elephant. The eclectic entertainment programme was enjoyed by all, with dance, theatre and vocal acts from India, Scotland, Tanzania and beyond! The younger guests were not left out, with a multitude of fun activities on offer at the Kids’ Corner, the ride-on train having been a particular hit!

The bazaar would not be possible without the strong support it receives from both the wider diplomatic and business communities, in addition to the commitment and energy of the DSG and UN spouses group (UNLESA) members. Our sincere thanks to all those who supported this year’s bazaar: embassies, businesses, entertainers, volunteers and indeed all those who supported simply by attending on the day.  We particularly thank all of our sponsors and raffle prize donors. Our principal sponsors this year were Tigo, KLM and Noble Motors BMW Tanzania, with many others also making generous financial and in-kind contributions. A special word of thanks to our Guest of Honour, Ms. Jaqueline Mengi, who gave an eloquent speech and visited many of the stalls. A big thanks also to the representatives of some of the NGOs we funded in the past year, who took the time to come and answer questions on the fantastic work they are doing with the funds raised at the last bazaar.
