It will also work towards the development of women, children deprived of education, rights of persons with disabilities, discrimination, exploitation of vulnerable groups like the tribals and the homeless and child rights

The Serena event was organised in partnership with Fenon Records. The company provided sound, stage lights and exotic backgrounds for the event.
The other local artistes who performed included gospel singer Levixone among others.
