CUBAN LITERACY PROGRAMME HAS BENEFITTED OVER 6.5 MILLION PEOPLE IN 28 COUNTRIES. The Cuban Literacy Programme teachers a person how to read and write costing not more than US$5. Some 6.5 million citizens in 28 nations are no longer illiterate persons thanks to the Cuban Literacy Programme known as “Yes, I Can.” The figure surpasses all statistics reported by other similar programmes implemented so far around the world. The statement was made by the head of the Youth, Adult and Literacy Department of the Latin American and Caribbean Pedagogical Institute Jose Ricardo del Real in an interview with Prensa Latina news agency. At present more than one million illiterate people are taking the course, said Del Real, which was first implemented in Venezuela in 2002. Photo courtesy cadenagramonte.cu
