Buy a Spoon - Build a Dream School

Here at KOTO, our trainees not only study but live together as a big family. That's why it's important for us to instill in them the value of caring, sharing, and empowering, so after 2 years with KOTO, they will not only be strong and confident in the pursuit of their dreams, but will also pass on the spirit to help many other less fortunate youth in Vietnam - just as what KOTO stands for: Know One, Teach One.

We welcome you to the KOTO community, and thank you very much for supporting us and dining at our KOTO Van Mieu Restaurant. "It takes a village to raise a child"; and our KOTO community hopes to serve as the 'village' in the successful stories of raising disadvantaged youth, who were born without a silver spoon but are equipped with the KOTO 'spoon', their second home away from home, with the skills to have stable jobs, to help themselves and help others.

We are constantly striving to provide a high quality environment for our trainees to live and learn with KOTO.  From 2023, we are moving to our Dream School - KOTO's forever home in Phat Tich, Bac Ninh about an hour’s drive from Hanoi.  With a generous partnership, the campus is being built which will allow KOTO to double its capacity and make an even bigger impact.  Phase 1 has been completed and we have moved in. You can see the progress here.  And now it is up to KOTO and ‘our village’ to ensure that it is equipped and well-functioning to provide a nurturing home and quality education to those in our care.  We invite you to be an integral part of our village.




Whether you are a corporate who wants to contribute to the society or families and individuals who want to help, you can choose from our 3 Spoon donations below:

Once again, we want to sincerely thank you for your unwavering support in making a brighter future for all, and see you again at our KOTO Van Mieu - our training restaurant in Hanoi, which provide at-risk and disadvantaged youth professional skills in hospitality and culinary arts.
