Mado is a young Congolese man who came to join his family in Lille in 2022 with one goal in mind: to find a job in the electrical sector. He worked on a series of temporary contracts from one week to the next, but nothing stable. “On my own, I didn’t know what to do. I saw advertisements, I answered them, but I never got any replies.” In June 2023, he met Alain, his mentor. Alain, who had managed teams throughout his career, now felt the need to be useful to society. After 3 months, Mado landed a temporary contract with Manpower as an electrician! A real bond has developed between these two: they go on outings to the theatre and visit exhibitions to give Mado a better understanding of French culture.
