The first day of the festival is an outreach day planned for two schools in the townships of Pretoria. These schools have been identified as schools that cater to less fortunate learners in Mamelodi and Atteridgeville, Pretoria. The outreach day will call on volunteers ranging from festival staff, attendees, sponsors, performers and any other stakeholders willing to lend a helping hand. Schools are the most opportune areas to fundamentally address inequality as education is a tool that is used to address poverty. The day of service allows for HCA to actively improve the quality of education in the community.
Volunteers will be expected to sign up prior to the service day and dedicate their time to helping with the renovations of the schools. Buses will transport all volunteers from the main festival venue, Voortrekker Monument, to the two schools where they will spend the day in service.
