One of our most meaningful events – KOTO GRADUATION CEREMONY 2018 of class 11, 28 & 29 took place on the 11th of June 2018 at the Pan Pacific Hotel, 1 Thanh Nien Road, Ba Dinh District, Ha Noi.


The theme of the KOTO Graduation Ceremony 2018 conveys a powerful self-affirmation message “This is ME” – “With Confidence, Love, Knowledge, Empowerment and Skills, I am now brave enough to rise on my own”. The ceremony was an unforgettable night full of emotion, from uplifting speeches by the Australian Ambassador to Vietnam – Mr Craig Chittick, our founder Jimmy Pham, Mr. Norman Gray to delightful performances by UNIS students, SINE and well-known artists Le Cat Trong Ly, Pham Hong Phuoc and Trang Trinh. Beyond a night of graduation, it was a recognition and huge encouragement for KOTO graduates to confidently continue their steps in their career path and life. Congratulations to all graduates class 11, 28 and 29.


“It is that time of the year, where we hold our breath for the most anticipated event of the KOTO calendar: The KOTO graduation. This year’s theme “This is Me” is about how these individuals went from poverty to security, from low self-esteem to empowerment, from hopelessness to a future of endless possibilities. This fully funded graduation ceremony promises to be full of surprises, tears and validations: This is them, our 69 graduates ready to embark on a new journey and a new chapter” – Jimmy Pham, KOTO founder.
