"It's with great pleasure that I can tell you about my new job as Park Manager for a 5 star hotel in Reunion Island.  The ADL courses I competed in Botany, Agronomy and Trees for Rehabilitation, definitely helped me get the position I applied for. My sincere thanks and gratitude to all the ADL team".              Leckraz K, Re-Union Island
