2011 DSG Bazaar

The Annual Charity Bazaar is the major fundraising event of the Diplomatic Spouses Group in Dar es Salaam.
The 2011 DSG Bazaar will take place on Saturday November 26th at the IST, the International School of Tanganyika, the Secondary School Campus, from 12-16pm. The admission fee is Tsh 5000 and children under 12 enter without paying.
The Bazaar is an opportunity for diplomatic missions in Tanzania to show-case their culture, food, handicrafts and other goods. The DSG Bazaar has become the highlight of the diplomatic calendar in Dar es Salaam.
With its entertainment, a wide choice of food, a range of children´s activities, a “white elephant stall” and an amazing Grand Raffle, the Bazaar is a great event for the whole family. The raffle prizes are generously donated by local business and the draw is one of many highlights of the day. This year´s main sponsor of the Bazaar is KLM.
Last year the Bazaar raised over 70 million Tanzanian shillings. This money is disbursed by the DSG projects committee to support Tanzanian organizations working with women, children and those who are physically or mentally challenged.
The Bazaar is organized by the DSG and its Fundraising Committee. All members who want to take part in organizing the bazaar are welcome to contact Gunilla Hjelmaker, chair of the DSG, or Julie Wakeman-Linn, fundraising chair, buy sending an email to dsgbazaar2011@gmail.com.
To organize the bazaar we need many different skills and expertise. Welcome to contribute – there is a place for everyone!
