Travel Experience

No ordinary restaurant. It's a place where customers enjoy delicious Vietnamese and European cuisine and where the staff (mostly former street and disadvantaged youth) are so full of energy and enthusiasm that it's contagious.

Responsibility

Empowering at-risk youth to pursue a life of dignity by providing training, life-skills, and opportunity as well as positive permanent change for at-risk and disadvantaged youth through the transformative power of social enterprise.

Business Case

As a social enterprise, KOTO has trained over 670 students at its two training centres in Hanoi and Saigon, with more than 200 currently enrolled. In addition to its foundation department that focuses on raising funds to support its cause through charitable activities and initiatives, KOTO also operates an enterprise that serves as a platform for vocational hospitality training as well as a source of income to support the welfare and training for the students. The KOTO Enterprise currently includes two restaurants, a bakery, a cooking class and a catering service.
