Sporting Marvels key operational objective 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 aim 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.

Those that make it possible are our partners! Without their heart, generosity and motivation to see us achieve our goal, Sporting Marvels would not be possible. We have a genuine global family made up of some amazing individuals, churches and ministries. All are big-hearted people who want to see Rhondda’s youngsters fulfil their potential, and also see other communities establish such a work in the mould of Sporting Marvels so that other young people can benefit in the same way as those involved in our work here in Rhondda.
