We need the support of many!
ICEP charity events combine good entertainment with social commitment and range from art shows and concerts to comedy.
In line with the ideas and interests of an organization, ICEP conceives an individual empowerment project in a development region.
Revenue for development work
The proceeds from events will wholly benefit ICEP’s development work. This is possible thanks to our generous corporate sponsors, who assume the costs of the events.
Best of ICEP Charity
The range of ICEP charity events goes from art shows to charity evenings in exclusive locations to concerts in the splendid House of Industry or in the legendary Cabaret Simpl.
In cooperation with Sotheby’s, art has been a tradition at ICEP since 2003: Then, the first charity auction took place at the Garden Palace Liechtenstein with Andrea Jungmann.
Strong voices, outstanding musicians and great entertainers were on stage in the Cabaret Simpl over the past few years to support the development work of ICEP.
The Charity in Jeans represents musical enjoyment in a casual setting. Whether jazz or Latin rhythms – it provides a relaxed mood and an entertaining evening, which invites you to network and dance.
Partner for projects with social impact
ICEP has already developed and implemented numerous social impact projects in cooperation with Austrian companies – the success speaks for our approach.
ICEP accompanied RHI Magnesita in the development and implementation of its Youth Employability Program, which systematically improves technical vocational training at RHI sites in Mexico and Turkey.
ICEP advises Agrana on the implementation of sustainability standards in its supply chain. In Mexico, the production conditions of the strawberry and mango farms were improved and certification became possible.
ICEP supports the Tyrolean hearing implant manufacturer MED-EL in measures to improve the diagnosis and rehabilitation of hearing impairments in developing countries – e.g. in Bangladesh and the Ivory Coast.
ICEP offers opportunities for volunteering, where an identified need in development work can be matched with the skills and resources of a volunteer. Operations can be carried out in the area of organizational development or training of trainers.
Volunteering in schools in Central America
In 2013, with the support of the pedagogue Verena Chavanne, ICEP launched a successful volunteer program, which teaches open learning to teachers in Nicaragua and Guatemala.
More and more companies worldwide rely on company volunteering programs as part of their CSR strategy and support the voluntary commitment of their employees to various initiatives in environmental and social areas. ICEP will be happy to receive inquiries from companies who wish to be advised on the planning and implementation of such programs in a global context.
Sally, textile cleaner
As an expert for visionary processes, I have once accompanied the ICEP team once to Kenya and once to Guatemala. There, I held seminars for ICEP partner organizations. They were interesting and intense days that contributed a lot to and benefitted the participants, but also myself.
I spent two months working for ICEP in Kenya, and I have been advising partner organizations on strategy development. I knew that kind of work from McKinsey, it was just in a completely different environment and for a good cause – an enormous experience. And a good feeling later hear how much Imani benefited from my advice.
I will never forget this summer in Nicaragua! We were a total of 9 ICEP volunteers and active around the clock and were actually able to apply everything we had learned in the preparation when we implemented the various training sessions and lessons. ICEP’s partner Fabretto took care of us very well and the family where I lived was incredibly nice to me.
In 2013 ICEP, with the help of pedagogue Verena Chavanne, started a volunteer program for students to teach methods of open learning to teachers in Guatemala and Nicaragua.
All volunteers attend a 4-month preparatory course in Vienna. They learn basic didactic skills, the production of teaching materials and hold model lessons.
Volunteers are employed by the ICEP partner organization Fundap in the western highlands. They help teachers to make their teaching methods and teaching materials more effective.
ICEP’s partner for the Educational Upgrading Program is the local NGO Fabretto. Volunteers support Fabretto in the training of the teachers and in the classroom in several regions of the country.
Corporate corporAID partner
ICEP wants to make a difference with corporAID. And every corporAID partner helps us to do more. In addition to the financial aspect, the platform must also be as broad as possible. Each Austrian flagship company also contributes an additional impetus in networking and important expertise in know-how exchange within the platform itself as well as with national and international experts.
Multiplicator for business & development
Even if you are not a company, you can support the corporAID platform: by recommending our events and publications and by distributing the corporAID magazine. The more readers are reached with sound information, concrete examples and the identification of economic opportunities for all, the better.
