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.
The sole objective of the project is to produce world class athletes and marathon runners capable of winning Olympic Medals for India in the near future. 30 boys and 20 girls are being selected for the project. They have been handpicked at a very young age, specifically from economically and socially underprivileged class irrespective of class, caste, creed and religion from rural areas of Nanded district. Most of the athletes are from scheduled caste, scheduled and nomadic tribes, socially and economically backward bracket of the society. This project truly goes beyond caste, creed and religion.
