Mamta Sagar and her students led the poems, which emphasized the importance of self-respect and accepting flaws in all humans. Rangbhumi, a theatre group, performed an act that explored the complexities of one's identity, navigating the audience's emotions and creating a safe space for everyone to freely express themselves.
Drishti, CSA's theatre wing, performed a play to raise awareness about the impact of patriarchal society, gender inequality, trafficking, and its ramifications. In addition, two sixteen-year-olds with black belts in taekwondo and karate led a self-defense workshop.

These exposure camps include visits to various project areas like Kolar, Malur, Bagalkot, Haskot, etc. Around 3,500 students are exposed to the village system of India, which serves as the backbone of the country.
