Kins of Africa [KINSAF] for Development and Re-Integration is an outcome of a workshop of Africans in the Diaspora at the Peoples Economic Forum of the Commonwealth Head of Government Meeting (CHOGM), held in Abuja - Nigeria in 2003. It emerged as a platform for seeking lasting Reconciliation, Collaboration, Re-integration and Social-Economic co-operation for Development among Africans at home and in the Diaspora within the framework of global development agenda.
To create a (Welcome Home) and credible action PLATFORM, for the reintegration and cooperation of Africans at home and in the Diaspora, with a view to addressing our common aspirations and hope.
Some of our slogans are the : Through KINSAF, WE ARE “RE-INTEGRATED AND BETTER DEVELOPED”. “DIASPORA RE-INTEGRATION AND ETHICAL DEVELOPMENT“. We aim to foster the development of partnership between Africans and African governments and their kins in the Diaspora with the goal of successfully implementing global development agenda to which African governments are signatories. (e.g. the Millennium Development Goals 2015 and the Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
To facilitate Networking, Complementarities, Collaboration, Co-operation, and Reconciliation, as well as exchange of ideas and transfer of knowledge and skills towards identifying the challenges and weaknesses militating against effective implementation of national and regional policies aimed at socio-economic growth thereby proffering lasting hands-on solutions to them with Africa’s KINS the world over.
We also intend to leverage the “homing instincts” driving Africans in the Diaspora and also engage the huge human and material resources for the purpose of overall national development. It is noteworthy that most of such skills were acquired at huge costs to African families and governments of the Africans in the Diaspora.
