The Association of Equatoguineans in Lanzarote (ASOCGELAN) and the Consul in the Canaries, Emerenciana Mangue Obiang Esidang, took part in the Teach Africa Project, under the banner “A positive view”.
The Playa Honda Secondary Education Institute (IES) in Lanzarote (Spain) organised the seminar to disseminate the plurality and diversity of countries on the continent, with significant participation from various African associations, including the one from Equatorial Guinea.

The opening ceremony was attended by the Adviser on Biosphere Conservation from the acting Lanzarote Island Council, Rafael Juan Gonzalez Robayna; the mayor of San Bartolome, Alexis Tejera, and the Adviser for Education and Universities from the acting Canaries Government, Soledad Monzon, who stressed that ” the project seeks to eliminate stereotypes and raise awareness regarding cultural, political and geographical diversity in Africa”.
