Squash Dreamers is excited to announce that both Nouran Gohar, the women's world #1 squash player, and Mohammed El Shorbagy, the world men's #1 ranking squash player, have joined the Board of Directors as honorary members. Squash Dreamers is a U.S.-registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides young Syrian refugee and underprivileged Jordanian girls with professional squash and English training to help them apply to outstanding international and Jordanian schools.
Nouran Gohar is an immensely talented youngster fresh off the Egyptian line of premier squash players. She won the US Open and the British Open Squash tournaments for 2019. Gohar, a successful Arab female athlete, is a natural fit for our organization's goal of empowering young, refugee women through sport.
Mohammed El Shorbagy is one of the most talented players on the Professional Squash Association (PSA) World Tour. He has flown up the world rankings since joining the PSA in 2006. He recently won the 2020 PSA world tour to regain back his status as the number 1 squash player in the world.
We are hoping that Gohar and Shorbagy will help inspire our girls to work harder and become globally-competitive squash players. Both players and Squash Dreamers invite you to donate to support our work by subscribing to our newsletter or donating to our program!
