Since 2002, Good Neighbors Nepal has been working for the betterment of the marginalized children in Karnali (Mugu and Humla). The children in this region still striving for the school education. As we have mentioned in the objective of this documentary, we are requesting to all our well wishers and friends for the betterment of those girls. Believing on opportunity creates the motivation and involvement of the locals; they need the motivation to level up in educational level. The concept story of this documentary was developed by Bimal S Bist. For your kind information we have also developed a concept of 'Sunakali Project' in order to specify the intervention.
For the construction of a residential school in Mugu/Humla: around US$250,000
Historically, and even after the democracy or republican, Mugu is known as remote, uneducated, low life expectancy and seasonal migrants for cheap labors and existing of food crisis district of Nepal.
National media also highlighted about the winning of Sunakali team and we also thought of this is the right time to overcome on gender inequality, and right to education. As a result, we decided to request to the community to honor the girls on their national pride through the following determinants:
भूकम्प प्रभावित थलोहरूमा पुगेर प्रभावितकै माझ फिचर तथा डकुमेन्ट्री फिल्महरू नि:शुल्क प्रदर्शन गर्ने फेस्टिभल सञ्चारकर्मी भोजराज भाटको डकुमेन्ट्री ‘सुनाकली’ बाट बिहीबार सुरु हुनेछ। साँझ ५ बजेपछि खुल्ला स्थानमा पर्दा टाँगेर देखाइने फेस्टिभल टोली त्यसपछि शनिबार काभ्रेको बालुवापाटी पुग्ने छ।
"Sunakali is about overcoming obstacles despite unfortunate circumstances; in that way it has universal appeal," noted Lawoti. "The girls' soccer team advances beyond what anyone could've have imagined." #SUNAKALI, #TNFF

'सुनकली' साँच्चै नै सुनकै कली रहेछ! मुगु जस्तो अत्यन्त पिछडिएको ठाउँमा लुकेर बसेका मेस्सी र पेलेको जीवन्त कथा अत्यन्त सुन्दर ढंगले प्रस्तुत भएको छ। वधाइ तथा शुभकामना भोजराज भाट र टिमलाई!
Sunakali was just amazing, thank you @bhojbhat. Still have such a warm feeling thinking of sisters who had so little and achieved so much.
SUNAKALI is not only a simple documentary film made on a 13 yrs old girl's passion and success of Football game. But, it also communicates a lot of messages to us, to our society, to our leaders, to our government and to our whole nation as well.
