- Education has been the pivot of all SSM's activities since its inception. SSM has therefore put in efforts to impart quality education through various pedagogical projects to more than 4000 children up to higher secondary level.
- Sagroli Sunrise is a carefully designed sports project started in 2004. Handpicked young athletes from Sagroli and other villages are given rigorous training by professional trainers every day to bring laurels to the nation.

- SSM has been working for Natural Resource Management since its inception through the activities like plantation, Awareness and implementation of Watershed Development Programs, Capacity Building, etc.
- Even today the donkeys are deprived of proper health care by the owners. To attend the most neglected animal, we started our intervention through Equine welfare project in Nanded district in 2010-11.
- Considering SSM's remarkable work to encourage the farming community for advanced mechanism in agriculture, ICAR New Delhi had sanctioned KVK(Agriculture Science Centre) in October 2011 which covers 8 blocks in Nanded.
We are implementing Sagroli Sunrise sports project since 2005 with specific objectives. It was realized that the strength and commitment of the rural youth is far more competitive compared to the urban counterparts. The rural youth could bring laurels to the nation in sports if whatever they need to hit the target is provided. Our candidates bagged maximum prizes proving their talent in various national level marathon events. Most of the children in the project are orphan and with rural background.
All the children are naturally gifted with strength and vitality. Our goal is to qualify in the Asian and Olympic Games.
SSM has always considered promotion of Sports to be as important as formal education. Since its inception, SSM has facilitated infrastructure and necessary material for sports. The overwhelming response from students in the form of participation and accomplishment in sports competitions at different levels made us support them in every way. Their zeal, endeavour and winning spirit have enabled them to leave an imprint in almost all sports events like Hockey, Volleyball, Handball athletics and traditional games like Kabaddi and Kho-Kho. The sporting spirit of these students has rubbed on the shoulders of the non-playing students who have also developed a spirit of sportsmanship. The school has no other source of income to develop and maintain the sports department. We require sports material and equipment to rejuvenate and upgrade the sports department. The funds raised from SCMM 2015 marathon will be spent on Athletes’ dress and standard sport materials, professional coach honorarium, athletes’ travelling expenses during marathon, nutritional diet, maintenance and external trainers’ hospitality, exposure visits for athletes, tools and equipment for training purpose.
