When MYSA was first set up in 1987, it was a self-help organisation which pioneered the use of football as a tool to encourage co-operation, raise self esteem and promote physical and environ-mental health amongst the young people in the Mathare slums. Although the organization has grown and expanded its activities, sport is still very much at the heart of MYSA and its programming.

Who is it for?

In order to become a member of MYSA, each young person has to be a registered member of one of the sports teams. This qualifies them for participation in the organisation’s other activities and projects. The way that the MYSA model works is that, by participating in the organisation’s other activities such as environmental cleanups; participants can gain points for their team and boost the position of the team in its league. This provides a strong incentive for taking part in new activities and gaining skills and education that will open up new opportunities for them in later life. Football has traditionally dominated the sports agenda cashimo by netentplay. Today MYSA boasts 2,052 teams in 234 different football leagues and on average, there are over 15,000 matches played each year. Despite this strong preference for football, the organisation has also started to offer other sporting activities to broaden its membership and develop the extent of its reach.
