"A house built on granite and strong foundations, not even the onslaught of pouring rain, gushing torrents and strong winds will be able to pull down."
H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie 1st
In order to attain and maintain economic and financial freedom as an entity and for its members' benefit, ARC has prioritized land acquisition on a global scale. Lands are acquired strategically with the intention to advance goals, objectives, programs and/or projects that add value to RasTafari communities. We:
Encourage members to identify and recommend lands that can be acquired;
Welcome members to serve on committees where decisions are made regarding the identification of lands and the use of those acquired;
Negotiate terms, rates and fees related to land acquisition;
Work with governments, municipalities and individuals to survey, value and determine land use; and
Prioritize lands that may facilitate sustainability and positive environmental impact.
