There is no ONE person that is the face of the G.A.C.N. Not ONE group, not ONE representation, not ONE decision maker, not ONE religion, not ONE ideology, not ONE nationality, but instead a community that comes together as ONE unified Network.
Our story and journey has been an ongoing work in progress, over the years we have managed to incorporate the many views and perspectives on countless numbers of people from the Pan African community, locally and globally. This type of all inclusive dialogue has helped tremendously with the GACN structure and development. The GACN is inspired by the vision and impact of Marcus Mosieh Garvey as well as the many ancestors that struggled and advocated for total liberation for people of African Ancestor before and after Garvey time. In 1991 One Love Philanthropic carried out Garvey's mission here is Toronto Canada. The name Toronto is indigonus, it means the meeting/gathering place according to the United Nations, Toronto is the most multi-culturally diverse city on Earth. All of the world nations are gathered here interestingly, Marcus Garvey concluded his mission here with his 7 international UNIA/ACL convention in 1938.
The GACN seeks your endorsement to create socio-economic prosperity and restore social harmony within our society. Our Mission is to allow the G.AC.N. to unite over 200,000 Real People to actualize a vision of collective economic prosperity. This will eradicate poverty and self-hatred from the Global Afrikan Communities and within Toronto’s AfriCanadian Communities.
Priority #1 - Health
The Ultimate resource of a nation is it people. Healthy people are a prerequisite to a healthy nation. Our people cannot make their full contribution to the future lives of our children unless they posses & enjoy those few fundamental prerequisites indispensable to rendering their full participation in our collective hopes and aspirations. We will need to utilize food cooperatives which prioritize the sale and distribution of fresh fruits and vegetables imported from the Caribbean and Afrika. These provisions will provide a natural source of nutrition at a wholesale cost to our people.
Priority #2 - Education
Education is the basis for the greatness, power, honour and prosperity of a people-therefore, we urgently need to form our own educational institutions to educate our children about the true knowledge of themselves and to prepare them to take their rightful place as responsible leaders of the nations and governments which will consitute the world of tomorrow.
These schools will be ethno-colturally focused to re-instill our true values and re-learn the exceptional history of our people.
Priority #3 - Poverty/Housing
A major priority is to purchase property. The Provincial Government currently plans to sell off townhouses & apartment complexes. By using our funds wisely we will be in a position to purchase property which will enable us to co-operatively cultivate a sense of community living. Once paid for, we would lease these living quarters at prices far below the market value.
The priority will be to ensure homes for the most needy members of our communities.
Priority #4 - Entrepreneurship
We intend to provide interest free loans and/or grants to fund new businesses in our communities every month. Applicants must present an intelligent and comprehensive business plan.
One Love is the Order, One Love is what Heals, One Love is the Power, One Love is the Seal, One Loves the Key to our Unity.
