At Acteus, we believe that responsible business will build a better future for the world. Throughout our history, we have considered our interests to be inseparable from the needs of the communities in which we operate. We demonstrate this commitment through our foundation, Acteus Smiles, that participates in various local organizations at the very heart of the communities we serve. Each year, Acteus Smiles works directly with NGOs aimed at providing assistance to children and women.
“Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development.” - United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4
Education is a priority for Acteus Smiles. We believe that literacy is the bedrock of stability and development of the communities we engage with, and the gift of learning is essential to improving almost every aspect of their lives. In partnership with local school communities and orphanages, Acteus Smiles is implementing measures to ensure that underprivileged children get access to education and in turn, a better future.
We believe that when women move forward, the world moves with them. When women are in charge of their families’ income, they invest in health, education and the well-being of their families and communities. In line with the United Nations Sustainable Development 5th Goal, “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls”, we launched a program in 2017 in an effort to help women fulfill their economic potential, and drive economic and social change in their communities. Working closely with our partners, we focus on women in development and deploy technologies that accelerate women’s economic empowerment.
