Helena Saboori is Swimmer & Head of Women’s Swimming Committee of Afghanistan.
This fundraising is for a short swimming course in USA and this will allow Helena Saboori to take her swimming skills to an higher level and get ready for Olympic 2020 Tokyo and other international competitions, this way she can train other girls professionally as well.
Women swimming is a new sport in Afghanistan, Helena Saboori is the only girl who started to build a swimming team for women and trained many other girls. She learned swimming by watching YouTube tutorials, after much effort, she persuaded the Federation’s attention to register the first Afghan women’s swimming team officially in National Olympic Committee for the first time in its history.
The biggest obstacle for woman in Afghanistan is that they don’t have a standard 25M or 50M pool to practice, and they don’t have a professional coach for women in Afghanistan. To get there, Helena Saboori needs your help. Support her funding for training in USA and contribute to women’s empowerment!

Dreamfuel is the premier high-level crowd-funding platform specifically designed by and for athletes. They work with each athlete or athletic organization to tap into the community that surrounds them, thereby engaging new fans and supporters along the way.
There is an assumption that all Olympians, Olympic hopefuls and elite athletes have sponsors. This is far from the case, as 85% of Olympic hopefuls’ income is less than 15k USD / year. Dreamfuel’s goal is to provide athletes with a new revenue stream to support their incredible efforts outside of or in addition to the traditional means of sponsorships and governing body stipends.
