Vision & mission
We are a co-operative, which is focusing on pooling resources: where funds are then invested ethically to benefit ACU members and the Afrikans at large hence the reasons to recruit exclusively amongst Afrikans.
The brief is to ensure members receive an annual return on their investment while on the other hand indirectly creating opportunities for fellow Afrikans who require uplifting.
Amongst others, ACU will promote and market goods from Afrika and the Caribbean. It will invest in the raw talents left undiscovered in Afrika and the Caribbean and one day ACU aims to invest in Afrika’s natural resources that are and have been exploited by multi-nationals without any tangible benefit to the Afrikan. ACU will work to replace the multinationals currently exploiting Afrika and the Caribbean without any benefit to the Afrikan. Instead ACU will put back into the communities that own the raw materials.
In all the ACU will invest your money in projects that make you a profit while putting something back into the Afrikan community.
Our strength is in unity for divided we fall. We are building blocks that will lead to self-sustenance and rid us of the victim mentality as a people.
These are not new ideas but just a fresh formula to address the wrong and face the future with confidence as a people.
ACU sees every Afrikan as a potential stakeholder who will take ownership to ensure that we all benefit.
Afrikans are a people trying to find their feet as a collective after centuries of being dominated and under captivity inside a bottle forever fighting each other rather than working together to overcome our suffering.
We have the numbers to succeed and like the ants, we do not need assistance, help or encouragement from anyone because these we hold from within.
Our immediate goal is to engage at a minimum 10% of Afrikans in the UK to become members in the next 5 years. Others will follow later.
Together, we will uplift our own lives and the lives of those less able than ourselves here in the UK, Afrika and Caribbean.
The twin goal is to benefit individually while helping brothers and sisters less fortunate than ourselves.
It can be done and we must learn to trust each other contrary to the negative propaganda not to trust each other.
There is an Afrikan saying that no one else plucks out the hair from your nose but you and such awareness will take us far.
