After the youth shibirs in Navsari and Bochasan, selected groups of yuvaks traveled the surrounding villages for five days. Each group comprised of five yuvaks.

From 16 to 20 May, the yuvaks toured in villages of the Bharuch, Surat, Navsari, Valsad and Selvas districts. There were a total of 17 groups and between them they visited a total of 85 villages.

From 24 to 28 May, 21 groups of yuvaks visited 105 villages in the districts of Kheda, Anand, Panchmahal and Vadodara.

The yuvaks visited one village a day in each village during the day they made personal home visits, held discussions, conducted Bal sabhas, organized a small procession and de-addiction camps. In the evening, a satsang assembly was held in which the yuvaks discoursed, sung bhajans and performed a drama.

During the personal home visits, the yuvaks talked to the devotees about performing personal puja, attending weekly satsang assemblies, observing a fast on ekadashi, sitting for the Satsang Examinations and remaining sincere in observing the codes of satsang.

In the de-addiction camps, they encouraged the public to shun their addictions to cigarettes, tobacco, ghutka, alcohol, gambling, etc.

It was first time these yuvaks had participated in such an activity. All had made thorough preparations and enjoyed and learnt from their experience in the villages.
