Near 20,000 Guatemalans Learned to Read, Write Using Cuban Method

LATIN AMERICA NEWS – (Prensa Latina) About 19,425 people have learned to read and write with the Cuban method “Yo, si puedo” (Yes, I Can) from 2007 to date in Guatemala, the national coordinator of that program, Vilma Monteagudo, stated today. About 20 municipalities were declared free of illiteracy in this Central American country until the end of last year, the doctor in Pedagogical Sciences told Prensa Latina.

yo-si-puedo-alfabetizacionThe United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization awarded in 2006 the Cuban method with the King Sejong Literacy Prize, an award that recognizes for a quarter of century the work of governments, governmental bodies, and NGO to promote literacy.

According to figures provided by the source, about 28 Cuban teachers are working in the departments of Santa Rosa, Retalhuleu (eight), Jalapa (one), Escuintla (two), Jutiapa (one), and Guatemala (three).
