Sporting Marvels is a Christian charity based in the Rhondda Valleys, South Wales, UK. Our aim is to put a positive Christian role model (a “marvel“) in front of every school pupil in Rhondda in the age range 10-18, every day, forever. We want to change the mindset of Rhondda’s young people; from one that says “I can’t” to one that says “I can” and to encourage them to make good choices and aspire to be the best they can be. Our mission statement in our first decade was “community transformation one person at a time” and
we hope that as we positively influence the young people we
work with that they will then help to transform Rhondda from being ‘the place to leave’ to ‘the place to be’. It’s our belief then that this will inspire other communities to follow suit and dream the same dream for their community. As you’ll see from the contents of our website, we’ve come a long way. Working through the schools, the Marvels, model right living, strong character and the importance of treating others as you want to be treated. As local heroes and the coolest people in town, they’re “inspiring transformation”, and they have already impacted the lives of so many children.
