Once applications are received and reviewed by the ICBD Charity Committee. According to established selection criteria, the ICBD Charity Committee then creates a shortlist of potential beneficiaries.

Members of the Organising Committee then visit the potential beneficiaries to learn more about their project in detail. The exact amounts of donations will only be determined after the Bazaar and depend on the funds raised.

Beneficiaries are invited to have a stand at the Bazaar to publicise their project.
