Cuban literacy method "Yes, I Can" it benefits the Ecuadorians

From Cuba News Headlines, 24 March 2008
According to Granma news daily, it is the Amazonian territory of Pastaza, where nearly 97 people from the Tsuraku community received certificates last week.

Ecuador already has a province free from illiteracy thanks to the Cuban literacy method ‘Yo si puedo’ (Yes, I Can).

Since 2004, when the Cuban program began to be put into practice in Ecuador, more than 83.000 Ecuadoreans have learned to read and write while 26 cantons of the Coast, the Mountains and the Amazonian region have been declared free from illiteracy.

Currently, eight Ecuadorean municipalities, including four of Peztaza, are already in the second stage of the literacy program.

Thus far, some three million people in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and Oceania have learned to read and write using the Cuban method.
