Why I Founded Bright Dreams
Since my high school days, I have been involved in various volunteering activities related to supporting the individuals who were underprivileged physically, mentally, and economically. Through my experiences with individuals who think and learn differently, I realized how fortunate I was and how different these individuals’ lives are.
From being a child to an adult, they face different challenges including getting around in a wheelchair with a crooked sidewalk, getting bullied at school or at workplace, not being able to communicate due hearing or speaking disabilities. Additionally, these individuals find difficulty when attempting to get accepted in the society, to make friends, and to find means to support themselves.
These struggles inspired me to establish this nonprofit organization with the purpose of meaningfully improving participation, education and employment opportunities, and outcomes for people with disabilities.
The COVID-19 pandemic was an eye opener as it shed light on the need to communicate and assemble resources remotely to fulfill the basic needs. This realization prompted me to create a common platform to source all available resources and make access to these resources a little bit easier for these individuals.
It’s a great time to get involved to make this world a more inclusive and equitable place for all. Please consider helping us by spreading the word and donating if you can. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and your donations are tax-deductible.
"Inclusion is a philosophy that embraces the idea that everyone has something of value to contribute and that everyone has a right to belong."
