A small Village Called "Sagroli" near Nanded of Maharastra in India, a voluntary organisations called"Samskruti Samvidhan mandal" with the help of a business man of Mumbai operated a project called "Sunshine Project"

All about "Sun shine project"

Sagroli ,A village near Nanded of Maharastra of India , A school is running by a voluntary organization called “Sanskriti Samvidhan Mandal” . their aim is to provide good education to the poor people. A business man of Mumbai mr Deepak Kanegoenkar joined with this organization to start a new project, the project is “Sunshine Project” ,now marathon is operating in most of the cities, on some occasions 10 k and 5 k marathons also organizing, international companies are showing interest to Encouraging these marathons, I think that villagers will shine in this marathons, so I wish to encourage the villagers so I have come forward to organize this project “Sun shine Project” said by Deepak, they have started it in the year of 2004, they have started the trainee centre in Sagroli village, he arranged necessary shoes, socks, T shirts, shorts for the trainees, then the problems are started

Feel a bit difficulty to operate the Sunshine project

They have selected interested kids those who have aim to win and got the medals, some of the persons may run ,but some people are not having that much height, some are weightless accordingly, but they cannot deny them, they know that these are having intention to win, so they have supplied nutritional food and arranged coaches and allowed them to supervise their exercises, after some days they have started fit running practice, but all is not liked wearing of shoes, they can run any distance but with bare foot, they does not have practice of even wearing chappals(foot wear) from child hood days, Suneeta feel the boots are burden while on running due to weight of the boots, but she is also one to became one of the athlet .Coach Bhagavan described the use of boots and convinced them ,some of them are run with fear in marathon in the city with city people. In the year 2005 the kids of “sunshine project” participated first time. Once they started running all their worries are vanished and two girls and three boys are win the medals, they got the confidence then.

“Sunshine” run started, the athletes are participated in District level marathon , they have win the medals in 5 k , 10 k and 21 k marathons, Jayasri Sivasankar Bhogri from Kolhapur win the Mumbai marathon, Olympics is my aim so I came here and running & learning here, Deepak win 6th position in Mumbai marathon, I have not studied making Vinayak idels is my work, I am showing interest in running from the child hood days Now it become my life, winning medals and living with joy, lot of people in different stages are shining all are having their aims.

Daily early morning 5 am to8 am running, then breakfast, then school ,once again one and half hour practice time in the evening and studies this is their daily activity. The coash said Marathons are not their life so we are giving them education and running ,after education they can settled in life with good jobs
