Our Impact

We believe that each individual can make a difference in the world, and our Jesuit mission of social justice has led us to share our expertise with rural and indigenous peoples worldwide, empowering them to shape and drive positive change in their communities. CIED programs have had a profound impact on the lives and communities of tens of thousands of participants worldwide. Graduates of CIED programs are leaders working for positive change in their communities and bringing new cultural understanding to a broad range of professional fields.

CIED is proud to be among the top organizations educating Afro-Latinos, indigenous people, women in non-traditional fields, and people with disabilities. Read our impact case studies here and throughout our website to learn how CIED’s programs are empowering individuals and creating positive change in communities worldwide.
