The Interact Club of Bharda New High School visited Our Lady of Piety at Vijaywadi on 1st September 2012. They were guided and accompanied by moderator Mrs Tasneem Gilitwala. President Sarosh Usmani introduced the 20 visiting interactors. Later, he went with the interactors and introduced them to the 13 inmates Gokim, Mariya, Christina, Christin, George, James, Alice, Nasrin, Rosy, Leena, Perera and Joice. The interactors made them play games such as housie and passing the parcel. They gave prizes to winners and cheered the inmates.

They then entertained the inmates with a dance. The inmates enjoyed it. To the interactors' surprise, Mrs Perere, the co-ordinator of all Interact clubs, also visited. She enlivened the spirit of the interactors who sang, When You are Happy and You Know It. Later, they also sang songs from old Bollywood movies. The inmates sang along. The most beautiful part was one of the inmates performed hand yoga exercises and the interactors were thrilled to see it.

The interactors danced with the inmates and served them home-made breakfast, which included poha, idlis, theplas, kheer, tea and biscuits. Before departing, the interactors gave each inmate a token of love (gifts) which contained things of their daily use such as toothpaste, toothbrush, hair oil, soap, napkin and talcum powder.
