More than 2.1 million people in 17 countries no longer remain illiterate thanks to the implementation of the Cuban "Yo sí puedo" (Yes, I can) method.
Today more than 580,000 people in 16 countries are learning to read and write using the Cuban "Yo sí puedo" (Yes I can) teaching method created by Professor Leonela Ines Relys Diaz.
The program, which can teach literacy in just 65 days using audiovisual aids, has versions in Spanish, Portuguese, English, Creole, and Quechua, Aymara and other languages.
The countries where the novel program is currently being implemented are: Venezuela, Paraguay, Argentina, Mexico, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, Peru, Honduras, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, New Zealand, Mozambique, El Salvador, Colombia and Guinea-Bissau, told the Cuban Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Education to the ACN news agency.
The method will soon be implemented in Grenada, Equatorial Guinea, South Africa, French Guyana, East Timor and Haiti.
