The festival offers an ideal opportunity to participate in a now proven fun even that draws a diverse group of people. Being a partner or sponsor not only allows you to be part of this great event but also to be part of the economic development of Bulilima District. 

10K Wrap Up & Run Road Race

The idea of a 10K race was first mooted in 2015 as part of the centre’s efforts to introduce recreational programs and activities aimed at discouraging unemployed youth from engaging in self-destructive activities.

Miss TiBaKalanga Beauty Pageant

The Miss TiBaKalanga Beauty Pageant is a competition that focuses on the natural beauty of its contestants with attributes such as talent, intelligence, and personality. Hair, gowns, talent, modeling and personal interviews will factor in the judges’ scoresheet.

The TGSCCC Memorial Library Project

The library is expected to help improve the study habits of students in this area, thereby improving their chances of advancing to secondary schools and universities. The general key deliverables of this project is to create a highly literate and culturally conscious society which is proud of its history and its way of life.

The Road to Miss TiBaKalanga 2022

A TibaKalanga Annual Cultural Event


The TGSCCC issued an invitation to villages across the district to participate in the competition back in January and immediately received an expression of interest from more than 10 villages that form a cluster around the cultural centre. While other villages remain interested, logistical issues have slowed down their ability to participate in the first phase of the competitions.

The beauty pageant competition is only one of the many commemorative events planned to mark 40 years since the passing of the late TG Silundika the national hero whom the cultural centre is named after.

    The development plan for the Cultural Centre outlines the vision, process, and requirements for the expansion of the existing family homestead into an environmentally and financially sustainable cultural community centre, through the integration of culture, agriculture, eco commerce, and education.

    The village concept integrates a range of facilities, venues and services which will be designed and built to complement each other.

    The village is being built and operated under parameters that will ensure sufficient earnings to sustain existing and expanded village initiatives. Physically, the cultural village will be anchored around several operational centres.
