The Service we Provide
Actsfile is about us (you and I), and how we impact our community and the world in which we live; and the universe around us. It is the little contributions that we make as individuals, groups, organizations, and governments and entities that add up to bring about the changes, progress, development and transformation that occurs in our nations around world.
What is an Act?
As an individual, you perform normal daily activities (Acts) and you interact with others for your personal, family or community advancement. Such activities may include purposeful actions to promote a particular cause; such as giving, encouragement, talks, meetings, volunteerism, entrepreneurship, sports business, etc.
Acts are simply the things that you or others do, your thoughts, ideas, and plans. Information we post on Actsfile therefore include our thoughts, words, sayings, advice, actions, interaction with others, and observations. Most times, people are not even aware that some of the simple things they do are important events.
It is the Acts of individuals, groups and organizations that collectively promote our “personal development” and the “development of your community” (village, town, city, region, country, continent and the world). By way of the things you think, do, say, and observe, you play a major role in shaping the future of your community and the world.
On Actsfile you have the opportunity to post your Acts in text format, or photos, videos, voice recordings, audio-uploads, file -uploads, smileys, GIF and others. The Acts you post are your own activities/ actions or the activities/actions of others that you consider important to either your personal growth and development or the growth and development of your community.
On Actsfile you also have the opportunity to link your Acts to global developmental initiatives such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, and Africa’s Agenda 2063 (The Africa we want) and more initiatives around the world. Where you are not sure of the most appropriate development category to link your Act, you may involve the Actsfile community through online questions, chats and forums.
Actsfile also gives you the opportunity to acknowledge individuals, groups and organizations working with you as co-actors as well as those who help to finance your effort (your funding partners). Actsfile provides yet the opportunity to backdate your post to the actual date of an event that occurred in the past. This enables you to comfortably post past events and place them in clear historical context.
When you post an Act, you have the opportunity to add it to your biography and document your roles in development. Your biography provides an avenue to chronicle your Acts to tell the story of how you are helping to make the world a better place. Your biography, becomes your “living page”, testifying to your vision and purpose. Your experience on Actsfile will give you unparalleled satisfaction as a member of the human family who play their part in the infinite web of Acts that define progress, innovation, transformation and success in different aspects of human life and sustainable global development.
