The annual KOTO Winter Appeal is coming up soon – we need your support


Every winter, KOTO staff and trainees visit an organisation as part of their community service program – an opportunity for our trainees to give back to the community and help those less fortunate than themselves.

During the annual Winter Appeal, we close the KOTO Restaurant so the entire team can spend the day working in the community, serving food, sharing gifts and providing much needed winter clothing and other items to the beneficiary. This year, KOTO chose to help Ngan Son Bac Can, a village located 220 kilometers away from Hanoi.

Last Sunday, KOTO’s staff went on a journey to visit three different schools in Ngan Son Bac Can, and has made the final decision to host the event in Thuan Mang school, which is the biggest one in the area. All three schools will be reunited there for the event, counting a total of 515 students of varying age: 216 in kindergarten, 170 in primary school, and 129 in secondary school.The event will take place from the 30th to the 31st of December, and 120 members of KOTO’s staff and trainees will be in charge of various entertainments and cooking for the children. The food that will be served is a traditional Vietnamese cuisine named “Pho”, a beef noodle soup. The gifts consist of various clothes to prepare children for the upcoming winter, such as blankets, sweaters and warm socks.
