Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
Kita Delta is proud to announce a fortuitous start as a social enterprise.
Kita Delta is founded by Thu-Trang Tran, whilst in Nha Trang, Vietnam in 2018 on her year of capturing wisdom.
Thu-Trang took a sabbatical from her work to complete her doctoral thesis on wisdom in public administration in Australia and China. In the process, she found herself in good company with incredible Vietnamese social change-makers. She decided to extend her break from her senior position in government to continue her social change work in Vietnam with her newfound collaborators (using our own personal funds).
‘While I was born in Vietnam, I grew up in Australia and established my professional identity and social change expertise there. In Vietnam, it was important for me to first listen, witness, and roll-up my sleeves and get involved to understand the lay of the land before establishing long-term relationships with local change-makers. Of the many experiences that came from months of engagement, I decided to establish Kita Delta to marshall all my expertise and that of my peers and apply it to our work and development activities. The listening and learning is continuous, and is key to growing Kita Delta.’
