How a 16 Year Old is Trying to Change the World.
Through InkThemes, We are connected with different kind of people all across the world. We receive so many feedback and personal stories of the users who are using our themes in various different ways and how they were motivated to built the websites.
So, I thought it would be really great thing if I try to capture things which were happening through our Themes in somekind of unusual ways, and today I am sharing the story of one of our users.
Before I start, let me tell you that the user, I am going to talk about is a 16 Year old kid from US. He is running a project named “World We Dream“. where this young kid had developed a website, to create a community of story tellers where people can share their true life experiences, especially involving people with disability and special needs.
With his dedicated efforts, he was able to convince few active people who shared their stories with the people through his WorldWeDream Site.
I personally really felt inspired in every possible way, with the type of effort he had put in creating the website and tried his level best to bring in the community of users who wanted to share the stories as well.
To get the idea of What the World We Dream project is and how Shubhankar is trying to bring the change to the World in his possible way. You can watch the Video below.
I personally asked Shubhankar Jain the developer of the Website about what was his motivation behind the website and how the users at InkThemes can help him and he shares his pretty interesting personal story. The post you read below had been shared personally by him.
My little brother Paras was born on November 27, 2000. 18 months later, he was diagnosed with autism. As he grew older, my family and I saw the communication and behavioral difficulties that he faced. We were blessed to find organizations in our area that helped Paras overcome these challenges. We experienced services given to Paras and other children facing similar difficulties and were thankful to all the effort they put in to aid my brother, but we still worried for his future and the question of whether he would become an independent individual. Accordingly, my family and I looked into transitional programs in the Bay Area and noticed that the current programs were having a tough time in filling the gap between education in school and work in the community. Young special need adults who were capable in finding a job or even a better one were not given the proper opportunity due to their communication abilities.

In response to this concern, WorldWeDream began in order to increase the chances of these unrepresented groups in society to integrate and become a part of the community. With today’s technology, we found an approach to provide special needs and underprivileged greater advantage in the job and college market: websites and video resumes. Video resumes and websites provide more information about the candidate ultimately giving a better and more thorough view of the applicant. For people who have not had job experience or who have difficulty in communicating, video resumes and websites are largely beneficial.
My hope is to expand this program worldwide so that we can assist special needs and underprivileged people in all parts of the world to integrate in the community and close the gap of the transition between education and community. We want global community integration because as a result, the potential to make a positive difference in the world grows exponentially. We want to improve the world, starting off with the community. We want to create the World We Dream.
How Can You Help?
