Was a soccer player, and a leader of the Mathare Youth Sports Association (MYSA). Mathare is a sprawling slum in Nairobi, and host to some of Kenya's most difficult challenges with urban youth that arise from rampant poverty, including starvation, homelessness, unemployment, HIV/AIDS, and violence, among other problems. MYSA has used sports to provide hope to several of these youth, some of whom are now on athletic and academic scholarships in universities across the world. Mathare United FC, a team formed from youth in these slums, is now one of Kenya's best soccer teams, and contributes a majority of players to the national team, Harambee Stars.

A great idealist wrote that people are born with equal rights. Then thousands of people cynically and sagaciously criticized it. Some diligently tried to make it real. It’s a paradox, but both the second ones - with their determined belief, and those who were unsparingly criticizing contributed that the idea, even slowly, but started to get formed in the minds of people and nations.
