25 Jul Team Antigua and Barbuda 2019 🇦🇬
“Wah Gwarn” FIRST Global – which is our local dialect for “Hello” from Antigua (An-tee-ga) & Barbuda (Bar-bue-da) – Team DadliBots.
Our team had an unforgettable experience participating for the first time in 2018 and have grown from three (3) to now over twenty (20) students. We are happy to be back for 2019 and even more excited about this year’s challenge – “Ocean Opportunities” – as it reminds us about the important role that everyone has to play in protecting one of the key natural resources that surrounds our beauty twin-island home, which have our 365 beaches – one for every day of the year.
We are all looking forward to participating in a nation-wide coastal cleanup for International Coastal Clean Up Day as a motivational lead up to the co-opertition in Dubai…
Can’t wait to meet and share with everyone – THANK YOU FIRST Global…
