Project Mali

ESL - Charity -
We sponsor a school in Timbuktu, Mali, sharing our resources and logistical experience. In one of the world’s most remote locations, it is a challenge to get essential supplies through to the classrooms. Our support for the school includes classroom resources such as desks, chairs, pens, books and learning materials for the children.


Clément Duay, in charge of Facility Management at ESL

"I’ve been working on this project for 8 months. The biggest challenge has been finding the best way to transport the container to such a remote location as Timbuktu."

"Each week I have collected donations from the staff. This money has been invested in “student kits” for the school in Mali. We have also collected more than 40 boxes of books, some printers, computers, televisions and hi-fi equipment."

"In my role as Facilities Manager, I work on different challenges like reduce and recycling waste, communicating with the staff worldwide, monitoring our carbon offsetting. We have many new projects starting. We want to become as green as we can."

"ESL is a really great company. The best quality of ESL is the atmosphere. Everybody is at the same level and you don't even feel the difference of status."

"To be everyday with young people is very comfortable and pleasant for me (I'm 21) It's a kind of study environment (like university) but at work. We have a staff event each week, which is usually pretty cool. The days go quickly here!"

"ESL offers the possibility to change from a department to another. The management is really open-minded and confident; they don't hesitate to give you responsibilities that nobody would have given to you because you maybe don't have the experience. I’ve learnt a lot working here that's why I choose to study economy (50%) and stay working at ESL (50%)."

TESTIMONIALS

Hannelore V.

Bournemouth is a pleasant city with a nice beach, lots of sports facilities and beautiful gardens. My two-weeks stay was a great experience. I took classes at Kings. This school has a very good reputation and its teaching staff is very professional and friendly. Here I was able to practise my English with native speakers. I find it important to use my English in real-life situations since the language is becoming increasingly important internationally and in interdisciplinary contexts. I stayed with a British host family, something I really recommend. In retrospect, I would even recommend attending a summer school at a younger age, for instance, during one's last high-school year. ESL really helped me along in my decision-making and I gained great confidence in this organization. I had a most unforgettable experience and would not hesitate repeating it!

My time at Shafston College has been wonderful. The school is like a family - it is small and comfortable. Meeting students from other countries has been very enjoyable - learning their customs and sometimes their languages. The teachers take care of the students - I would not have passed my Cambridge course without their support and extra help. The administration staff were amazing and I have had a great time and learnt a lot on the Gold Coast.

To perfect my French language skills I contacted ESL, who quickly helped me figure out the best options. A friend of mine had shared with me her own experiences with ESL, which made me decide to contact this organisation as well. First I visited their website which is very well organised and where you can actually find all the essential information you are looking for. Then I called them for an appointment and agreed on meeting them in their Antwerp office. Everything went pretty smoothly and we were immediately given all necessary details and explanations. Once in Tours it all started! I can really recommend the "Institut de Touraine"! The teachers are very enthusiastic and its location is excellent. I myself started at a very low level, but after three months I had acquired a very considerable knowledge of the French language. To conclude, I would like to say a few words about Tours itself, which is also very important. It is a historic town situated quite nicely between the Loire and Cher rivers. I really enjoyed the many castles and beautiful scenery alongside these two rivers. My French host family was incredibly friendly / helpful and provided everything else I needed. In short, an unforgettable experience!
