Shop for a Cause at the BIWA Charity Bazaar

Weekend markets are quite a common sight in Bali – a fun daytime excursion for the shopaholic-at-heart. Somewhat different from the rest, the Charity Bazaar courtesy of Bali International Women’s Association (BIWA) is an annual weekend market that has been around for some time, and befitting to its name, will indulge your philanthropic side as well.
Last year’s Green-themed event (no plastic bags allowed!) attracted more than 3000 visitors and they’re aiming higher for the upcoming bazaar. 2017’s Charity Bazaar—bearing the theme “Unity in Diversity”—will be held on Sunday, November 5th, and will offer more than 200 stalls displaying food and various eclectic goods and merchandise. There will also be spectacular musical and dance performances, a children’s corner, as well as a grand lottery and raffle, to keep the whole family entertained throughout the day.

All proceeds will be channeled to support various social welfare projects that the organization champions, such as sewing courses for women to achieve financial independence, funding to take care of abandoned babies, distributing cooking equipment to help empower women, and facilitating educational opportunities for mentally ill and hearing-impaired children.

BIWA, founded in 1974 and still going strong, is a non-profit and non-political charity association for women from different nations and cultures residing in Bali. They provide aid for all people in Bali, particularly women and children by offering help and resources to local, impoverished families that are left in the shadows of modernization.
BIWA’s Charity Bazaar will be held from 9 am to 5 pm at Lotte Mart, Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai, on November 5. Don’t forget to bring your Christmas shopping list!
