our man in hanoi on the life of a volunteer

This is a moving reflection on the realities and challenges of volunteer work.

He works as a volunteer for KOTO, a group that actively works to find and provide skills to Vietnamese street kids so they can find viable stable jobs.

"You look around at the well-nourished, happy kids that you spend your days working alongside. You can't fail to love them all but you worry. Are we helping the right kids? It's an easy trap to fall into to where you forget just how much KOTO does for these kids."
