KOTO (know one teach one)

Hanoi, Vietnam

www.koto.com.au

KOTO is a not-for-profit restaurant and vocational training program that is changing the lives of street and disadvantaged young people in Vietnam. In addition to providing street children the possibility of acquiring a skill which will give them self-esteem and the possibility of renting somewhere to live, KoTo encourages everyone going through the programme to identify someone else to help.

“The greatest accomplishment for the person who has helped you, is to see you stand on your own two feet and then in turn help someone else that reminds you of yourself, because if you Know One, then you should Teach One.” Mr Jimmy Pham, KOTO Founder and Director.

There’s an excellent little film about KoTo on YouTube which shows the work they do.
