Havana, 16 Sep (ACN) A group of 17 Australian Aboriginal people from Collarenebri, located in the northwest of New South Wales, received their literacy certificates using the Cuban method Yo Si Puedo ("Yes I Can").

The campaign is directly assisted by Cuban specialists and implemented by the Australian Literacy for Life Foundation, the Cuban mission in Camberra reported.
The Cuban ambassador in Australia, Ariel Lorenzo Rodriguez, congratulated the students for their dedication and spirit of improvement and highlighted the results of the application of the method ¨Yes I can¨ in Australia.
This method has been implemented in nine Aboriginal communities in New South Wales and the Northern Territory since 2012, achieving a promotion rate of over 60 percent and more than 200 graduate students.
Lorenzo Rodriguez stressed the joint efforts being made to extend the campaign to other far-off areas of Australia, while confirming Cuba's commitment to continue supporting the implementation of this noble literacy program, which already constitutes part of the friendship and cooperation bonds that unite both countries.
This program was created by Cuban specialists in 2001 and to date it has taught more than five million adults in nearly 30 countries, most of them in the Third World or in the developing world.
