According to Eyman, through her company Anticlo Investments, which she founded last year, she intends to become an exceptional educational interface for the tourism industry.

 “Our mission is to be an educational interface and consultant to training institutions in order to bridge the gap between theoretical learning provided by institutions and the realness of the industry thereby equipping students with hands-on experience,” she said.

She said that they currently act as a consultant to different organisations in the industry by enhancing their employees’ professional skills and knowledge.

To achieve that, Eyman said they intend to provide students with vocational experience, expose students to the industry and create for them a platform for liaison intended for future corporate relations, enhance students learning experience of languages, as well as promote environmental awareness and education and infuse the sense of conservation of scarce resources on the end users.

Their services are divided into four departments including the tourism development department, language development department as well as environmental education department.

Under their tourism development department they intend to uphold the linking of students to the authenticity of the tourism industry with the goal of providing students with vocational experience, expose them to real-world experiences as well as enhance attained skills and knowledge through experiential applications.

Packages include workshops aimed at enriching students with core skills that apart from other factors are

essential in the labour market for employment opportunities and field trips aimed at stimulating students interest, motivation and appreciation of their educational program materials and applications.

“We aim to enrich key competencies, employability skills and generic skills on tourism students and also want to enhance students employability capabilities, “ she said. Eyman said that they came up with the language development department to enhance the learning experience of students pursuing French in government schools.

“In consideration of the significance of culture in tourism, the company’s development department fosters on promoting languages that are spoken within Botswana. However, in the meantime the company’s directive is focused on the students’ responsiveness to French Language. In the near future the company will embark on promoting Setswana language and Afrikaans,” she said.

Workshops are also offered to students in creation of stories or storytelling, short essay writing, french presentations, communications (role plays), short spelling competitions, and fieldtrips. Like the workshops, she said that they organise fieldtrips for students pursuing French language either solely for a particular school or at individual level however in groups.

 “These fieldtrips are to expose students to events and organisations that promote french language in Botswana. This is a way of attaching students to the importance of French language and its benefits to an individual, fieldtrips activities will include competitions,” she said.
