Difference between Tanzania Day 2017 and Tanzania Day 2018


  1.  2017 was our inaugural event and we had some amazing milestones including finally erecting the Tanzania flag at the city hall of a major city in America. This is the 4th largest metro area by GDP in the US, it’s also in the top ten by population. This visibility and acceptance will certainly yield fruits for Tanzania in terms of increased visibility hence increased tourism and most certainly investment.


  • In 2017 we came up with a creative way to include families by having children activities during the Tanzania Festival. This outdoor event allowed vendors from Tanzania to showcase their products and services. All this was accomplished by charging a small fee to participants. In 2018 the Festival will be free to everyone and with this we anticipate thousands of Americans to be present to learn more about Tanzania to buy Tanzanian products to be sold by vendors. This is why we are inviting Tanzanians with products and services to come to Dallas for business.


  • Tanzania Day 2018 will also be different in that we will be hosting business to business meetings between Tanzania and US business leaders to introduce new partnerships and also allow for deeper collaboration between Tanzania and the US. Tanzania Day 2018 Soccer and basketball tournaments will be an event where communities can showcase their capabilities. We have also invited the Tanzania Parliament teams as guest teams to play with Diaspora. This will be the first time the Tanzanian legislators will engage the Diaspora in a more social setting to further strengthen the relationship between Tanzania and her Diaspora. On Sunday, April 29th, 2018 there will be a 5K bike ride to raise awareness of cervical cancer that has impacted Tanzanian women for a while. All proceeds from this activity will go to buying vaccines and other help in Tanzania.



  1. The slogan for Tanzania Day 2018 is influenced by Mt. Kilimanjaro which is the highest mountain in Africa as well as the nation’s ambition to be the top destination for tourists in Africa as well as the fastest growing economy. This is why our theme for Tanzania Day 2018 is: Safari to the Top. Soaring to New Heights

  2. This year we have invited delegates from all continents, from Norway to Dubai, from Uganda to Australia. We believe the rebranding effort is one for all the Tanzanian Diaspora in the world.

  3.  Preparation for Tanzania Day 2018 began in May 2017. We have reached out to Tanzanian media houses to partner with us in these efforts. The same has been done with American media as well.  We presently have the partnership of US-based local radios and TV stations. To ensure Tanzania based business leaders get most mileage we have invited business leaders to express their business interests in advance so we can organize business to business meetings during their visit.

  4. In 2018 we have rolled out an innovative branding strategy through a unique number (+ 1 817 50 TZ USA). This number is intended to further the brand along with our other new asset, our website: ( This effort of growing the Tanzania brand in the US is a long term one and we would like to call on all Tanzanians to join these efforts. Our neighbors from the north have done a wonderful job branding themselves and this has been translated into a very high number of tourists and now they are about to start a direct flight from the US. Tanzania is better placed to own this space and be ahead of all her neighbors. We, Tanzanians in the Diaspora are confident that our beloved President, H.E President Dr. John. P. Magufuli will support Tanzania Day 2018 efforts as we continue to fly the Tanzanian flag in the US with utmost pride and advancing his agenda. Only us the Diaspora can tell the Tanzanian story from the Tanzanian perspective in these foreign countries that have become our second home.
