KIN STORIES

Ambassador Feature:
Nico + Christi Panagio

Mother Theresa once said: “I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.” These words form the basis of our efforts to work in partnership with people from all walks of life.

This lead us to connecting with Nico and Christi Panagio, well known to many South Africans from their days in ‘7de Laan’. More recently they have been presenting a number of shows and made their way into many South African homes and hearts. As Chairman of Missing Children South Africa and parents to two lovely adopted daughters we are very happy to partner with this power couple. So, before we say too much, here are their own words on their experience of adoption and why they came onboard with KIN Culture.

It is easy to romanticize adoption but the reality of actually going through with this life-changing process, is often too daunting for many. Whether conviction, time, finances or unwilling partners are the reason people resist making the commitment, the truth is, it is not always possible, no matter how badly you wish you could.

However, imagine a situation whereby you could indirectly adopt, by supporting an initiative that has loads of time, intense conviction and passionate commitment and many willing, supporting partners? But all they lack are the funds . . .

The KIN Culture team is deeply devoted to adoption and has created a platform for everyone and anyone to get involved with the raising of children in need and there are many ways to get on board! Not all of us can bring a new person into our families but anyone can adopt INDIRECTLY. To us, nothing is more significant, than providing a safe home for a homeless child.

Every single child on this earth is but one caring grown-up away from being a success story! And lets face it, it takes a village to raise a child – which means that Kin Culture is what real heroes are made of.

We feel that each and every grownup has a responsibility towards each and every child;
‘Every single child on this earth is but one caring grown-up away from being a success story! And lets face it, it takes a village to raise a child- which means that Kin Culture is what real heroes are made of.

There you have it folks. Let’s all get on board with making every child a success story.
