THE Association of Diplomatic Spouses in Namibia (ADS) will be hosting the eighth International Food and Craft Bazaar on Saturday 14 April.
The International Food and Craft Bazaar is a reputable charity open market and is regarded as a melting pot of diverse cultures intermingling with people from all walks of life, embassies and diplomatic missions in Namibia. The aim will be to present exquisite culinary specialties, unique arts and crafts souvenirs from their respective countries, together with performers from the north, south, east and west.
Come taste Portuguese specialties alongside Malaysian food, sip on Cuban Mojitos and listen to French singers all on the same day at the Franco Namibian Cultural Centre.
The participating countries or embassies include four European, seven African countries, two American countries, four Asian countries, as well as the ADS, and the Southern African Customs Union (SACU).
Other a c t i v i t i e s planned for the day include cultural performances, local and international entertainment as well as craft vendors from various organisations, namely, Penduka, Iyaloo the sewing project, Works of our hands, Tom’s Batik, Jacobina Newaka, Mammadu Trust, Maruketti, Mekenificent and Mina Shivute Dresses. The ADS is a non-profit organisation, founded in 1990 by diplomatic spouses. It is composed of spouses of diplomats and members of international organisations, like the UN. The ADS members feel that being privileged diplomatic spouses in Namibia, and benefiting from the hospitality offered by the Namibian government, they need to give back, by helping disadvantaged and vulnerable people in the country.
All proceeds from this year’s event will go to charities supporting young women and female empowerment in Namibia.
The event will begin at 10h00 until 14h00.
