Be a Dream Maker -Trainee Sponsorship Program


Trainees’ Sponsors play a vital role in helping a trainee secure a brighter future through education and practical training. 


It is said that “it takes a village to raise a child”; we have nearly 200 trainees to raise each day, from accommodation and meals, to education and well-being. It takes a lot of effort to provide a holistic training program to transform their lives for the better. While our social enterprise is working towards sustainability, the profits of our restaurants ensure 50% of operating costs are covered, the other 50% is fulfilled by our fundraising activities, sponsorships, and donations from our valuable sponsors and donors.

Each trainee costs $7,200 to fully cover the two-year training program expenses.


By investing $150/month, you are participating in the life-changing journey of a trainee:


  1. Package 1 – Educational Sponsorship: contributes towards the costs of recruitment, training (including towards training materials and equipment, uniforms,  teachers' salaries, books, and extra curricula programs), administration and other related educational expenses or;

  2. Package 2 – Living and Well-being Sponsorship: contributes towards the trainees' living costs such as accommodation, meals, medical checks, vaccinations and recreation activities. 


After signing up to Be A Dream Maker, each sponsor will be allocated to a specific trainee. We encourage sponsors to build a relationship with the trainee over the duration of the program, as it is a fulfilling and enjoyable experience for both the trainee and sponsor. It is great to watch the trainee grow through each stage of their training. We send sponsors periodic progress reports, updates, and other communications to make sure sponsors are involved in the investment of their trainee.


*All sponsorships made via KOTO International are tax deductible for Australian tax payers
