Over 300 Thousand Angolans Benefited with Cuban Literacy Method

Havana, October 2 (RHC)-- More than 300,000 adult Angolans have learned how to read and write with the help of the Cuban Literacy methodology known as “Yes, I Can.”

The Cuban method, which has been successfully implemented in 30 nations, proved its effectiveness in eight Angolan provinces, according to Granma newspaper.

Learning to read and write in Angola has been essential in the country's fight to eradicate of hunger, poverty and disease.

The implementation of the Cuban methodology has been backed by several Angolan institutions, such as the Angolan Women’s Federation and other church groups.

Over six million illiterate people in the world have already benefited from the Cuban literacy program “Yes I can”, enthusiastically endorsed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, UNESCO, which acknowledged the program with the “King Sejong Literacy Promotion Award” in 2006.
