Co.Act is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run by high-school and college students on the West and East coast of the US, China, Korea, and Africa equalling thirteen branches total. Co.Act’s graduates have gone on to Columbia University, Yale, Penn, Cornell, Duke, UC Berkeley, USC, Boston College, NYU, and George Washington University. Starting 2015, Co.Act has been aiding students in third-world countries by putting together fundraisers and exhibitions, even receiving a letter of gratitude and encouragement from President Barack Obama. Assemblywoman Young Kim and Congressman Ed Royce have also aided Co.Act’s efforts.
Co.Act aims to provide monetary and emotional relief to students around the world who live in disaster-stricken areas. Co.Act has helped students in Central America, Africa, South America, and Melansia. Through multiple annual exhibitions in America and Korea, Co.Act has been able to raise funds in support of other countries.
We have received official recognition and a personal letter of appreciation from President Barack Obama for our support to those lives lost on the Korean Sewol Ferry in 2014.
For our 2018-2019 term, Co.Act is currently working to improve the facilities of an elementary school in Uganda. We are creating blueprints to build a playground suitable for children with disabilities. We are also providing coloring books made by our very own Cooperation Act members.
