Privacy Policy June 2011


It has come to our attention that there are organisations in the United States and elsewhere that are copying the Koto model and even, in some cases emulating Koto by using Koto images and false endorsements. As a consequence, well meaning supporters and donors are providing funds to these organisations in the belief that they are supporting Koto. These groups are not assisting Koto, even if they claim that the funds are to be transferred to Koto.

Please carefully check the credentials and identity of any group before you donate money, sign up to sponsorships or provide credit card details. Currently the only organisations that are involved in the Koto Project are: Koto Hanoi in Vietnam, Koto International Limited in Australia and Australian Volunteers International in Australia.
