Celanese recently unveiled its International Impact Program, an employee volunteer program of the Celanese Foundation intended to help organizations and people around the world address economic, social, and environmental challenges. The first projects for the program are located in Uberlândia, Brazil, where Celanese employees will assist three organizations that provide social services to their local communities.

The program recently sent 10 Celanese employee volunteers to work with individuals and non-government organizations (NGOs) to help them achieve their missions. Celanese employees share their business and professional insights, along with tools to enable these beneficiaries to strengthen their strategies and infrastructures so they can thrive over the long term.

“The company is proud of our employees who are giving their time and talent to support these deserving organizations in Uberlândia,” said Gretchen Rosswurm, vice president for Corporate Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility. “They come from China, Singapore, Germany, the Netherlands and the United States. They are chemists, accountants, managers, engineers and more. Each is a talented, committed community volunteer and Celanese employee. While in Brazil, these 10 employees will work in sub-teams to deliver specific needs for each NGO. This includes creating a sustainable marketing model for a community garden; enhancing volunteer retention for an organization that supports domestic violence victims; and offering management tools for a home that provides free housing for females undergoing medical treatment.”
