Running in India has been growing by leaps and bounds over the years and Bengaluru is one of the cities leading this change. Bengaluru boasts of having the largest runners community in India and many Bengaluru runners across different age categories have been winning at the major marathon events in the country. Bengaluru has been referred to as the fitness capital of India.
Bengaluru is all set for the 4th edition of its annual city marathon, which will take runners through important landmarks of the city. We believe this event will go a long way in promoting running in the city and encourage a fit and healthy lifestyle.

We work with some of the world's poorest children and young people, taking them from a childhood full of challenges towards a life with a meaningful livelihood options. We equip young people with the skills and knowledge they need to grow up and move out of poverty.
Children on our programme complete school, and go on to enroll in vocational institutes or colleges. They successfully fend off destabilizers such as child marriage and child labour and become first-generation salary earners. Our participants complete their education and have secure careers.
Our youth-centered Livelihoods Programme connects the aspirations and potential of young people to available market opportunities. We build their employability skills and map job potential based on individual strengths and mobility.
We work with support structures: parents, the community at large and local institutions to ensure results in social, emotional and economic well-being for all young people living in that area. Our approach mobilises the entire ecosystem available to the child or youth to create transformational change in their lives.
