Two flex (one on project activities and the other on information about the event) were displayed on the two sides of the screen with clear information about the name of the project, funding partners and implementing agencies. Prior to the live screening of the football game, a presentation of the project activities was carried out in the gracious presence of special guest, youth and women from the community. The participants were requested to disseminate the project information to their family members and neighbors in the community who were not present in the event. Following the presentation of the project, football WC 2018 closing ceremony was screened which was then followed by live football game between France and Crotia.

Food stalls were set up during the event where local community women took part and serve the local cuisine. The food stall gave market space for the entrepreneurial women to commercialize their skills. Only three women took part in setting up the food stalls and serving food despite SABAH effort to bring more community women and guide them to commercialize their skills and instill entrepreneurial spirit within themselves.
