Ecuador Province-Cuba Sign Agreement

Quito, Oct 19 (Prensa Latina) The Ecuadorian Pichincha provincial government and the IPLAC, Cuba's Latin American and Caribbean Teaching Institute, will sign on Friday a collaboration agreement to improve the quality of education in that province of this country.

IPLAC rector Cesar Torres Batista told Prensa Latina this agreement will allow optimizing the quality of education in Pichincha, where Quito is located.

It is a project that goes beyond the Yo Si Puedo basic literacy teaching program, because it comprises assistance to children from zero to six, families, and even differently abled minors, he said.

He explained that health specialists, and teachers of Spanish, Physics, Mathematics, scientific orientation, and other subjects, are involved in this work, and will contribute to implement an integral education.

Batista highlighted that this program seeks to educate human beings and allow including them in society, with a more comprehensive knowledge, which will favor socio-cultural development.

The agreement will be signed at the end of the Yo Si Puedo Basic Literacy Teaching program national meeting, in which around 200 delegates, including Cuban teachers and Ecuadorian collaborators, are participating.
