Yo sí puedo

More than 65,000 Guatemalans have learned to read and write since 2007 with the help of the Cuban literacy programme ‘Yo sí puedo’ (Yes I Can), which has been used in at least 28 countries worldwide, including 13 in Latin America.

The system was created in 2001 by Cuban pedagogue Leonela Relys, at the Cuban government’s request and this method, used in Africa, Europe and Latin America, was awarded the King Sejong Literacy Prize by UNESCO in 2006.

It is only a start as Danilo Valladares writes in this article from Inter Press Service which appeared on Global Issues.
