Correa thanks Cuba for support in literacy program

Quito, July 29, (ACN) – Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa thanked Cuba on Saturday for its help in the national literacy teaching program with the Yes I Can method, to free the country from one of the greatest dictatorships: ignorance.

During his weekly report to citizens, this time in Ibarra, in the province of Imbabura, Correa underlined that the literacy teaching plan is making progress and said that it’s expected to eradicate that scourge in 2013, the Prensa Latina news agency reported.

Visibly moved, Correa read some of the letters written by humble citizens who have learned how to read and write, in which they express their gratitude for the Cuban program Yes I Can.

The head of state congratulated all literacy teachers (Ecuadorians and Cubans) and reiterated the support and appreciation of the Ecuadorian government because, he said “you’re making history.”
