About KOTO

WHO WE ARE

KOTO stands for Know One, Teach One. Learning should be passed on; knowledge is meant to be shared. This is the essential idea of KOTO’s Vietnamese-Australian founder, Jimmy Pham.

 

More than 16 years ago, Mr Jimmy opened a hospitality training centre in Hanoi, giving at-risk and disadvantaged youth the opportunity to learn and thrive in their lives.​

 

KOTO's purpose is to end the cycle of poverty by empowering and helping our targeted youth to forge a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.  ​

 

As a social enterprise, KOTO has trained over 700 students in our training centres in Hanoi and Saigon, with 200 of them currently enrolled.​

 

In addition to the Foundation arm that focuses on raising funds to support its cause through charitable activities and initiatives, KOTO also operates an Enterprise arm, which serves as a platform for real life hospitality training and also a source of income to support the training and welfare of our students.
