First day of class brings hope to 27 Vietnamese young people!

Updated: Mar 21

  • KOTO has welcomed it’s 38th class at the training center in Yen Vien.

  • In total there are 27 new students.

  • They come from four ethnic minorities.

  • They come from the South 10, the centre 1, and 16 from the north

  • The gender break down: 19 male and 8 female

On the outskirts of Hanoi, earlier this week, 27 fresh faced young Vietnamese nervously embarked on the first step of their KOTO journey. Arriving at the training center bright eyed and eager to learn they met their fellow classmates, the staff, and of course, took a tour of the school.

"I was somewhat nervous at first, but the feeling was gone the moment we went on the school tour. It was really fun," said new trainee, Thanh Nguyen from Saigon.

Thanh was one of ten students to make the move north for their two year training program with KOTO. There are also another 16 students from Northern Vietnam and one from the Central Highlands.

For many, it was their first trip to the capital and being in a new city and at a new school, can be daunting.

“They always look so nervous,” said Foundation Director, Hanh Hoang. “But after just a few weeks they become so much more confident.”

KOTO’s newest cohort is a mix of young people from all over Vietnam. There are four ethnic minorities represented and the class has a gender split whereby about two thirds are men and the remaining third are women.

This will be KOTO’s first intake for 2021 and will replace class 35 who are about to head to Phu Quoc to complete their training at The New World Phu Quoc Resort and Fusion Phu Quoc Resort.

This real-world experience is a pivotal part of KOTO’s training course. A training course that was put at-risk by the COVID-19 pandemic from which KOTO is still recovering.

It’s hoped that when Class 38 graduates in two years time the worst of the pandemic will be long gone and things will be back to normal.

Until then, however, your ongoing support, as always, is greatly appreciated.

If you can, please consider donating to KOTO.

I used to fantasize about becoming a well-known article writer, but I quickly learned that I couldn't write more than two phrases. When I was in university, my best friend was brill assignment . On my own, I couldn't tackle writing duties. I discovered that each of these writers has though a thorough screening process and holds the appropriate degrees for the work their clients require. This is a good thing for me because it directly affects the quality of my job.
