About sixty countries, together with vendors and charities participated in the Bazaar and traditional foods, snacks, crafts, jewelry, textile and other typical products of the different countries were on offer.

The goal of the Bazaar was raising money for vulnerable groups such as women and children. IDSA is well known because of their active and creative contributions during many years in assisting, supporting and uplifting deprived communities, children, women, institutes and organizations in South Africa. The goal of this year’s bazaar was again to raise money for these charities.

There were raffles and auctions that took place as well as various performing groups such as: “Gum Boot Dancers” from “Boy’s High”, the “Tshwane Metro Police Department Ceremonial Unit Choir” and the “Dare to Dream Ballet Dancers” from the “Dare to Dream Foundation”.

After welcoming all guests and participants, Mrs. Shanti Roseval thanked Reverend A. Paterson Head of The School for accommodating this unique event in the Hall of St. Mary’s DSG, free of charge. She also thanked the MC of the event, Mr Adam McCarthy, High Commissioner of Australia and all the hard working IDSA members and friends for their contributions.
