    Fashion is a statement. It's also a work of art. Outfitters, fashion experts, beauty analysts, and corporate culture experts guide our travel learn participants through the use of color codes amongst multiple societies, settings, and individuals. We get to arrive at a fine print on various questions revolving around color rioting or color blocking, not only in dressing or grooming. We have them in ‘make-up' use, nails, shoes, bags and a range of other accessories.

    Travel learn participants hear from selected fashion color rioters what the statement is meant to be when they combine colors the other way round. An accountant walking into the office in purple pants and yellow shirts knows what we don’t know. Whose rule is it anyway? To get a compilation of statements, we feature 200 color rioters from different societies. They tell us why they are in these colors. All we need to do is compile these set of responses, displaying the combinations in question; just as they are.

    Based on a virtual tour of multiple societies the world over; A 'multi-society' sampling changing perceptions on the use of English at varying degrees ; capped with an ‘11 day’ participatory & exploratory tour of the United Kingdom by ‘Travel-Learn’ Participants

    Some see it as an 'American vs. British English' affair; others think it’s about class, style, finesse, educational level etc. Yet another category says 'all we need to do is spit it out. As long as they understand us in spoken and written forms'.

    Whilst sociolinguists see grammatical correctness, these perceptions are important in addressing the quest for a more relaxed use of the language. Travel Learn as a Focus group works towards answering a range of questions that further contribute to how people perceive the use of English and ‘what’ quota of the sampling sees ‘which’ factor as the reason for superiority in usage.

    Based on a virtual tour of multiple societies the world over; Reveals what they have in common and apart, A journey into their respective heritages in history, opportunities for collaboration, technological advancements, challenges; capped with an ‘11 day’ participatory & exploratory tour of 'Civil War Torn' Angola by ‘Travel-Learn’ Participants

    The terms Cattle Rearers, Ranchers, Pastoralists and Nomads are often inter-used as not to clearly represent what they stand for. Agreeably the dynamics of movement, mixed farming, synergies, and manuring, often clearly divide these. Technological advancement, class and accessibility are also clear dividers

    After having drawn 200 operators from the four groups, we put their operations under the microscope as we document what they have in common and apart. This is not done theoretically or definitively, it’s in the practice. Completing a virtual tour into their operations, we come together as a benchmarking focus group for '11 days' in Angola.

    With a comparative approach, we look at the herdsman ship, the conflicts, the challenges, conservation threats, finesse, the technologies the cultures, the divisions of labor etc. The exercise concludes with a presentation on prospective areas for collaboration despite the featured operators being societies apart

    Societies get to fall within these trajectory based on a range of factors including, but not limited to languages, tribal differences, ethnicity, annexation, ideology, religion, resources, military control installations, climatic imbalances, migrant factors etc.

    For instance, a society like that of Swaziland-Southern Africa enjoys a 'one people one language' advantage over various other societies. On the other hand, ideological differences may often exist regarding system of government and transparency hence the emergence of dissenting voices. Travel Learn activity focuses on the pros and cons from a neutral point of view.

    The Wizard of Ives: An Exploratory Journey into Witchcraft Assertions

    It goes beyond indigenous beliefs and isolated accounts. As early as Biblical times, King Saul sought the Witch of Endor to summon the dead prophet Samuel’s spirit to help him defeat the Philistine army.

    It’s all still in the realms of mystery but a commendable wealth of informative materials are available giving clarity on the concept of witches and wizards. Much like the surviving orphan son from a polygamy extended family who believes his parents were bewitched to death, seasoned thinkers, and highly intellectual minds exist across societies that believe and consult witchcraft in varying degrees.

    Even religious subjects from acclaimed faiths are reported to flirt with witchcraft every now and then. From overt to discreet, we dive into the minds of peoples from various societies who give us their experiences and why they believe or not. Because this is abstract thing to prove, we try to gather as much logical material as possible. Activity wraps up in Ivory Coast (Cote d’Ivoire), a country whereby over 70% are surveyed to believe in witchcraft.

    Unmasking The 'Lowest Crime Rate' Societies : In Pursuit of a Model to Emulate

    There are still places in the world whereby one could go to sleep, leave a $1000 envelope or valuable trinkets on the sitting room center table and find it on the next day...because there was no burglary. Also, there are societies whereby your broken down car parked by the street sides does not get vandalized, let alone get stolen.

    Certainly, such societies, we wish to emulate. For instance, statistics place Abu Dhabi and Dubai of the UAE as one of the ‘close to’ zero tolerance crime cities in the world. What is known so far includes the fact that lower crime rates are grossly linked to chunks of resources in terms of fiscal budget, infrastructure, human resources and other items in the paraphernalia. Preliminary studies show societies that once thrived in community policing simultaneously get an increasing rate of crime once the budget shrinks.

    Travel Learn participants would like to know if it is the morality, religion, good policing, favorable economy etc. Are the police officers in these few societies impermeable to bribery and corruption, a very poignant factor? Is it so, would it be chiefly due to getting adequately paid? These and other factors are simply surveyed using both qualitative and quantitative methods.

    Knowledge documented out of 11 days of participatory touring and learning is shared

    Based on a virtual tour of multiple societies the world over; Focus is on key achievements and a quest for rationale on why key players get forgotten or somewhat downplayed in the annals of history; capped with an '11 day’ participatory & exploratory tour of Nigeria and Ghana by ‘Travel-Learn’ Participants Often, history books and archival materials are filled with several key players in nation emergence, development and service. In some cases, these players have had their roles either downplayed or totally muted.

    Ironically, some of the bigger players could not have had it done without the rather muted characters in play. Our approach to realizing this exercise relies on historians at country levels, available archival materials and questionnaires at community levels.

    After due process is followed to ensure that the selected names from several societies are actually in line with the objectives at hand, we get them profiled, assembling a mechanism to help determine the uniqueness of roles they played in their respective societies; weighed against the erstwhile levels of historical capture.

    The final phase of this travel learn program is slated for Ghana and Nigeria, two neighboring West African Nations; the former being the first African country to gain independence from colonial powers, and the latter being the most populous country in Africa, often referred to as the 'Giant of Africa'.

    Based on a virtual tour of multiple societies the world over; Focus is on time keeping, punctuality and time management from multiple societies the world over; capped with an '11 day’ participatory & exploratory tour of Geneva by ‘Travel-Learn’ Participants

    In this Travel Learn program, participants visit Ancient & Modern Approaches to Time Keeping and Time Management.

    It is generally known and well evidenced that most Western countries practice commendable time keeping and management. On the contrary, some African countries are highly reputable at being 2-3 hours late, or even a 'no-show' without regrets. In the Kingdom of Swaziland, Southern Africa however, despite the general saying that 'There's no hurry in Swaziland', a line purportedly attributed to a former renowned King, punctuality and time management is far highly rated in comparison to most West African nations like Nigeria and Ghana. Travel Learn participants are interested in getting some answers. Is this about the general mentality of the people? If it is, why? Only a participatory examination can give the answers.

    An interesting angle is added to this holiday compilation, a feature of different time keeping technologies of old, cutting across societies; from Pendulum to 'Gan-Gan'

    Based on a virtual tour of multiple societies the world over; A taxonomy of ideas from multiple societies and their sources . Is it indigenous? Is it borrowed? Was it acquired? From where?; capped with an '11 day’ participatory & exploratory tour of Morocco by ‘Travel-Learn’ Participants

    If we think of ideas like 'dining table habits', 'getting a 13th cheque', 'cultivating reading habits', 'marrying within certain degrees of kindred spirits, consanguinity and affinity', 'euthanasia', ladies first', we find a relative level of acceptance, and conformity to these ideas; society by society. Extensive research will find these answers in history books.

    What travel learn participants want its end product to read about and watch is a concise taxonomy that tells where what a set of listed ideas came from first, then, onwards as it got modified.

    Final leg of this project takes place in Morocco, home of the oldest existing, and continually operating educational institution in the world , the University of Karueein, founded in 859 AD in Fez, Morocco.
