Students learn a number of collaborative skills so they can work well together in long-term (tribal) groups. The focus is on: Tribes is a step-by-step process to achieve specific learning goals. Four agreements are respected: bauxite mining and alumina operations in northwestern Guinea historically account for about 80% of Guinea`s foreign exchange. The bauxite is refined into alumina, which is then melted into aluminum. The Guinea Bauxite Company (CBG), which exports about 14 million tonnes of high-quality bauxite per year, is the main player in the bauxite industry. CBG is a joint venture 49% owned by the Guinean government and 51% by an international consortium called Halco Mining Inc., itself a joint venture controlled by aluminum producer Alcoa (AA), global miner Rio Tinto Group and Dadco Investments.  The CBG has exclusive rights to bauxite reserves and resources in northwestern Guinea until 2038.  In 2008, protesters who were energizing about poor power supplies blocked the tracks the CBG uses. In its agreements with international oil companies, Guineau often contains a condition that requires its partners to produce electricity for the surrounding communities.  Tribes is a research-based process that creates a culture that maximizes learning and human development. This process requires learning how to build a community through three phases of group development; Inclusion, influence and community.
During these phases, participants will demonstrate the five agreements; Listening attentively, Mutual Respect, Appreciation/No Put Downs, The Right to Participation/The Right to Passport and Best Personal Performance/Personal Responsibility (This final agreement was added because schools felt there was a lack of accountability in the agreements). The Guinean national football team nicknamed National Syli (National Elephants) has been playing international football since 1962.  Your first opponent was the GDR.  They have not yet reached the World Cup final, but they were runners-up to Morocco at the African Cup in 1976.  Guinea`s president is normally elected by referendum for a five-year term; the winning candidate must obtain a majority of the votes cast to be elected president. The president heads Guinea, with the support of a council of 25 civilian ministers he appointed. The government manages the country through eight regions, 33 prefectures, more than 100 sub-prefectures and many districts (known as the municipalities of Conakry and other large towns and villages or “neighbourhoods” inside). The district level is elected; The President appoints officials at all other levels of the highly centralized administration.
Guinea () is a western coastal state in West Africa. Formerly known as French Guinea (French Guinea), the modern country is sometimes called Guinea-Conakry, to distinguish it from other countries with “Guinea” in the name and region of the same name, such as Guinea-Bissau and Equatorial Guinea.     Guinea has a population of 12.4 million and an area of 245,857 square kilometres.  In July 2013, three days of ethno-religious fighting took place in the city of Nzerekore.   At least 54 people died in fighting between ethnic, Christian or animist kpellas, ethnic, Muslim and middle-class communities. Among the dead were people killed with machetes and burned alive.  The violence ended after the Guinean army declared a curfew and President Condé issued a call for calm broadcast on television.  Guinea`s literacy rate is one of the lowest in the world: in 2010, it was estimated that only 41% of adults were literate (52% of men and 30% of women).  Primary education is compulsory for 6 years, but most children do not attend for as long, and many do not attend school at all.
