 MYTO has a youth sports association currently headed by Wycilff Otieno. MYTO Sports was started in 2006 to provide a place for Mathare youth to come together and participate in a group activity, since unemployment is common in Mathare. In order for a team to participate in MYTO Sports, they have to have members from the major ethnic groups in Mathare. This helped the youth get to know youths from different ethnic groups and regions in Kenya. 

In MYTO Sports the main sport is football, or soccer. The team practices under the supervision of a coach. They play in tournaments in Mathare and around Nairobi. 

 Future Goals: 

  • Getting more soccer balls
  • Raising money for one more set of uniforms (for away games)
  • Raising money for shoes
  • Raising money for transportation fees
