Nearly 200 Spanish people received their certificates after learning how to read and write through the Cuban literacy method “Yo si puedo” (Yes, I Can), which has been used in around 30 countries.

The second graduation in the city of Seville took place over the weekend. Around mid this year other 50 locals finished the three-month teaching period, Prensa Latina news agency reported.

In the graduation ceremony, Cuban ambassador Alejandro Gonzalez Galiano expressed his satisfaction as the Cuban educational program has helped around four million people to learn to read and write.

Local authorities thanked the solidarity of the island and regretted that in the 21st century there are 35,000 illiterate people in a so-called First World city like Seville.

Sevilla´s first vice president Carlos Vazquez, in charge of developing the literacy plan, assured that they will not rest as long as there is one illiterate person in the city and have Cuba’s support.
