Jimmy Pham, the organisation's founder and CEO, says: "The idea started on a walk 16 years ago when I met four wandering children and decided to help them; and now we have KOTO. We have been operating for more than 10 years in Hanoi and two in Ho Chi Minh City, aiming to give disadvantaged children a brighter future. The children are our siblings, and KOTO is a family, not just a vocational school."
