A while ago I came across KIN Culture and was immediately interested in what they do. KIN stands for ‘kids in need’, which is exactly who this organisation aims to help. Their vision is to build a self-sustaining village where vulnerable children are taken into care and provided with an education and opportunities to give them a brighter future. What I love about it is that they aim to use the ‘cluster foster care’ model/approach, which means that six children will be placed in a home with parents, ensuring that each child receives the love and security he/she needs. The model was inspired by LIV Village in Kwazulu Natal.
In order to raise funds for their own village, KIN Culture started an online store, selling items designed with sustainability in mind. Much like our own products, all of their products are locally produced with quality materials. Their products can be foundonline and all of the proceeds go towards building the village.
I love what KIN Culture stands for and what they do. Helping orphaned children has always been a cause close to my heart, which is why I really wanted to get involved. That being said, their products alone are stunning and worthy of being featured. I bought a bag from them a while ago and was really impressed with how well it was made and with how much care it was packaged – I think that really says something about KIN Culture as an organisation!
All of the above products and more can be found in the KIN Culture Online Shop. For more information about their organisation and to find out how you can support them, visit kinculture.org. Also, don’t forget to ‘like’ them on Facebook!
