We are excited and proud to be bringing our popular KOTO One event to Australia and New Zealand for the very first time. In the past, the Vietnamese community came together and in the spirit of “ together as one, we build our global community”. We hope that the Australian and New Zealand community will continued to support KOTO through our national fundraising efforts with the end objective to built KOTO its first ever hospitality school.

The event will take place in Melbourne on the 20th of September 2017, Sydney on the 22nd of September 2017, Adelaide on the 28th of September 2017 and Auckland, NZ on the 2nd of October 2017. We are grateful to the strong support of KOTO International Board of Directors, KOTO Alumnus, Shared Tables Hospitality Club, Rice Kitchen, The International of Brighton, Heathfield High School, Sen Vietnamese Kitchen and Bar, Trudi Nelson the MC and our special guests chef Vanessa Baxter.

Jimmy Pham – KOTO Founder/Executive Chairman will be representing KOTO there and update on the growth of KOTO as the first and leading Social Enterprise in Vietnam.

“As an Australian citizen, I am grateful to the strong support from friends, sponsors and partners in my home country, from the curriculum training for my kids to the scholarships for my alumnus, from the sponsorship program to many other opportunities that Australians have generously given KOTO in the last 18 years. Alongside, the New Zealand community has embraced our KOTO kids when we participated in the 2015 Taste of Auckland and AUT hosted us last year with 6 of our trainees for the once in a lifetime work experiences to the some of the Accor properties. I feel truly blessed to be in a company of so many change makers and I look forward to sharing more stories, our work and our hearts with our Aussie and Kiwi friends and supporters without your sprits and compassion - KOTO wouldn’t not have had the opportunity that we are and have enjoyed - thank you”
