If CSLI is what we do, then UTW is the heart of who we are. Just ask anyone who has come to our school, including the tens of thousands of students from over 100 countries, the dynamic teachers and staff, caring homestay families, and dedicated support services agents. And through our facebook community we stay in touch. Many meaningful encounters at CSLI have taught us that we are not all that different. Many of us are lucky enough to have traveled and met people from other countries & cultures and we have come to realise that not everyone has the same opportunity for education. Our mission is to nurture greater tolerance & understanding between cultures and create a world that is a little smaller & better connected.
CSLI & UTW have also formed a formidable partnership with Rose Charities Canada (registered Canadian charity#859442303RR0001) with joint projects in tsunami & war-torn Sri Lanka. All charity efforts are done in a professional & dignified manner where 100% of all funds raised go directly to those in need. We have no religious or political affiliation and have had great success.
