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

Carlos Alonso Rodríguez

Galway was one of the best experiences of my life. It’s a small but incredibly lively city, and it’s impossible to get bored there. It has all the atmosphere of a university town, and every night, there’s something to do, like the salsa nights on Wednesdays at Monroe’s and Fridays at The Front Door. The people there are really friendly and try to help you as much as they can. I stayed with a host family, and they treated me as if I were their own son.

I would also like to mention the Atlantic language school. I had an incredible 8 months there, and every week you have the chance to meet new people. I made lifelong friends, and today I’m still in touch with people from Brazil, Italy and South Korea, to name a few.

If I had the opportunity to go back, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second.

My one-to-one language stay at Mr & Mrs Smith’s home in Worthing was very good. The couple is very nice and helpful. From Monday to Friday, in the morning I had a 3-hour lesson (often more than 3 hours) with few breaks, and in the evening I had to do some homework in my bedroom (I requested it!). In the afternoon, Tony and his wife Anne would have me visit the surroundings and keep me busy. They are very nice and they welcomed me into their family life as if I were a real member. Their home is simple but comfortable: I had my own big room (around 15m2) facing the garden, and it was very quiet. Tony and Anne were very careful with the food quality (they like organic products), so I ate very well the whole time; Anne likes to cook for her guests and tries to satisfy everyone’s taste.

In a nutshell, I am very happy about this experience: I improved my English in the best conditions and discovered the surrounding region.

My stay in Exeter was a beautiful experience both on the personal level as well as on the language learning level.

At ESL, they advised me very well in Valencia. With highly personal service and great organisation, they were always making sure that my trip met my expectations. Both my host family and the GLOBE school were of the highest quality.

Of course, I would go back to ESL again for its amazing service and professionalism.
