  1. With squash, Ahmed, I always believe you get out what you put in, or what you invest. Seems to me that your investment is paying off in a big way with this boy, congratulations. He’ll be changed for the rest of his life by this, and maybe he’ll be ANOTHER great Egyptian champion!

    1. Thanks alot Aubrey. Such a pride to feel that squash, the sport that influenced us all, could make kids lives better. Many kids need a chance like that and hopefuly squash gives all dreamers their chance to live a normal life.

  2. Hi Ahmed. My name is Nick and I coach at Boksburg squash club situated in Gauteng South Africa. I coach kids with ADHD once a week. I wish to stay in touch with you as the kids have special needs. I wish to help. It would be appreciated if you have any information that could help me help the kids and vice versa. I am in close contact with the school of transformation. The staff at the school are qualified to give information on how to manage certain situations.
    Regards.
