Who We Are?

We are the people of the Kins Foundation of Africa.

The Kins Foundation of Africa

The Kins Foundation of Africa is an organization of business and professional men and women gathered together in clubs for the purposes of service and fellowship. By service we mean the rendering of aid and comfort to those of our fellows in need of assistance and by fellowship we mean the bonds of friendship arising through the mutual participation of club members in service activities.

Kins club is a service club where fellows can find companionship and participate in club programs. This is a good idea. You may have been in the city for some time but you know very few people. We must agree that we need each other and we need to interest one another and then get together for conversations.

“Serving the Community’s greatest need” is the key phrase in the life of any Kinsman or Kinettes. This ideal is an attitude of being a thoughtful and helpful person in all of one’s endeavours. That’s what our goal truly means.

The Kins Club-Creating space for your thinking to take off.

The Kins clubs create doors. It makes it easy and free to share your thinking on any topic, connect with an audience, express yourself with a range of communication tools. We create chances for good people in our society to replicate themselves.

Kins Club is a forum where members come to tell stories to the faces they may never see under the sun. Kins club is an open platform where millions come to find insightful and dynamic thinking. Here, expert and undiscovered voices alike dive into the heart of any topic and bring new ideas to the surface.

If you have a story to tell, knowledge to share, or a perspective to offer; welcome home. The best ideas can change who we are. Kins club is where those ideas take shape, take off, and spark powerful conversations. Our purpose is to spread these ideas and deepen understanding of the world.

We’re creating a new model for development conversation. One that supports nuance, complexity, and vital storytelling without giving in to the incentives of advertising. It’s an environment that’s open to everyone but promotes substance and authenticity. And it’s where deeper connections forged between experts and undiscovered can lead to discovery and growth. Together with millions of collaborators, we’re building a trusted and vibrant ecosystem fuelled by important ideas and the people who think about them.

We will not wait for rotary to come and do for us what we would do for ourselves, we will create our own rotaries. We will not wait for Bill Gates to come and solve our needs, we will create several Bill Gates amongst ourselves.

Our Vision: The Society Vision of the Kins Foundation of Africa is a Harmonious and Self-Sustained Society in Africa; while the Organisational Vision of the Kins Foundation of Africa is to be the Leading African Service and Fellowship Organisation on the continent.

One thing is for certain. Kinsmen and Kinettes will respond to the challenges of our society with a zest and enthusiasm. The Kin attitude is one that exemplifies a hands-on approach to service work. Not content to simply write cheques – if there’s work to be done, Kinsmen will do it!

Our Values: The values that bind all Kinsmen and Kinettes include; Self-satisfaction, fun, personal growth and Community Service. These are the ingredients that make up the Kinsmen winning formula.

We uphold African society values of; Living according to nature, The spirit of communal living, The virtues of self-reliance and The tradition of festivals.

Our Togetherness:

“A man who calls his kinsmen to a feast does not do so to save them from starving. They all have food in their own homes. When we gather together in the moonlit village ground it is not because of the moon. Every man can see it in his own compound. We come together because it is good for kinsmen to do so.” Chinua Achebe-Things Fall Apart.

We therefore work hard to revive the togetherness of Africans. ‘‘The white man is very clever. He came quietly and peaceably with religion and politics. We were amused at his craziness and allowed him to stay. Now he has won our brothers, and our clan can no longer act like one. He has put a knife on the things that held us together and we have fallen apart.’’ -Chinua Achebe

In the rest of the world we read information, we read stories, in the world there are books, there is written information but in African history there was something else our ancestors did, they used to sit under the ancient tree, under the moonlight in the village ground, around the fire place as the story-teller used words to weave a tapestry in one’s mind with his or her words. “A man who calls his kinsmen to a feast does not do so to save them from starving. They all have food in their own homes. When we gather together in the moonlit village ground it is not because of the moon. Every man can see it in his own compound. We come together because it is good for kinsmen to do so.”

Children loved to hear the adults speak and sing, they related to them, related to the characters in their tales, and loved the gentle rhythm of the songs and the words that allowed children to see the possibilities in life. At Kins Clubs we will not only call one another to a feast, but also call one another to talk together, to think together and to prosper together. We are different cultures today, we all live together as one community, we need to establish a platform where all of us can celebrate, appreciate and explore a diversity of cultures alongside their own and get inspired to different developments
