Connecting the Asian Community
The Asian diaspora is widely regarded as the most successful and affluent immigrant community in the United States. The Asian American Cultural Organization (AACO) is a is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit entity, which organizes events and programs that taps into the vast resources of this dynamic community to improve the lives of millions of women and children in Asia.
AACO organizes events at a national and local levels in the US. These events bring together vast sections of the Asian community under one roof to celebrate their rich cultures and traditions. Through these events, it creates awareness and generates donations to address issues like Human Trafficking, Illiteracy and Unhygienic living conditions prevalent in large parts of Asia.
Events like the Asian American Heritage Festival are platforms to support organizations and causes that revolve around three primary challenges faced by children and women in Asia
The news stories are filled with heart breaking stories of women and children from different parts of Asia being pushed into forced labor and prostitution. Slavery and flesh trade are inconvenient realities of the world we live in. Often poverty and lack of education is what drives women and children into these horrific situations. At AACO, we salute and support organizations that are working tirelessly with law enforcement agencies and social service institutions to rescue and rehabilitate those who are caught in the evil web of human trafficking.
We live in a world where millions of people live without basic sanitary and hygienic amenities. We take these amenities for granted, while there is an entire world that is suffering from malnutrition, illnesses and completely avoidable diseases. We, at AACO, are committed to the vision of a world where millions of people around the world can get basic amenities like sanitation, clean water, and medical help.
