The new Public Affairs Officer of the United States Embassy to Equatorial Guinea, Meghan Luckett, visited the Dreams Hub research and innovation centre (Afrilabs member), the morning of June 17th, 2021, to meet the participants and team of the Crystal Eggs program.
The Founder and Managing Director of the initiative, Oscar A. Nchaso Bekari, was on hand to welcome her and her team, to share and discuss the objectives and plans of the program.
Crystal Eggs or Huevos de Crystal, in Spanish, is currently Dreams Hubs headline project. It is made up of children between the ages of 7 to 13 who come from families and/or communities with limited economic resources. When they sign up for the program, the children are then set on a learning path of technology and digital tools to nurture, imbibe, equip and set on the path for a greater future; all for FREE.
In recognition and praise for their work, the new Public Affairs Officer of the US Embassy to Equatorial Guinea, congratulated the Dreams Hub project, which for the third consecutive year is a beneficiary of the embassy’s grant for innovative programs.
“It is our mission and great satisfaction for us to see public contribution projects such as Dreams Hub, which promote diversity, multidisciplinary activities, and allow more girls, boys and young people to access information technologies, contributing to close the digital gap”, she said.
Meghan Luckett then exchanged words with the children, had pictures taken and spoke some more, encouraging them to continue seeking knowledge and put into practice what they learn.
Oscar Nchaso thanked the United States Embassy on behalf of the project and his team, for their continued support of the project and Dreams Hub.
