Celanese International Impact Program, Improving The World

South Africa – A Country Filled With Life, Love And Beauty 

I would like to thank Celanese for selecting me to participate in the 2017 Celanese International Impact Program (CIIP) in South Africa! I appreciated being a part of this group and am grateful for each moment I experienced. I am sure that I made an impact in that community; and the people there have impacted me forever.

Before leaving for this trip, I was excited to do something for another community and knew we would put our dedication, patience and love into every detail. I was eager to live in another culture and reality. I was ready to meet my colleagues from the Celanese community and show the world…

Her warm-heartedness made me feel at home…

A Brief History Of Our PartiCIIPiants 

South America, Europe, Asia – and this year, Africa. Now that the Celanese International Impact Program (CIIP) has achieved a global reach, let’s celebrate what we’ve accomplished through this program.

I remember back in 2013, when CIIP was launched. The whole company was incredibly excited about the opportunity. One month in such an exotic country as Brazil – you could really make an impact! The application process took several weeks and included writing essays, personal interviews – and even creating your own project video in the final round!
