Panama relaunches literacy program

Monday, August 11, 2014

Panama on Monday relaunched its national literacy program, a project in which it has the cooperation of the Cuban government.

"We support the theory that the fight against poverty, social inclusion, as well as means-tested assistance and the participation of all the sectors that are involved, will influence things so that we can reduce the number of illiterate people in the country," said Social Development Minister Alcibiades Vasquez.

"We aspire to reduce to 3 percent the number of illiterate people at the end of this five-year period, which is a very ambitious goal, but we can achieve it if we have the support of all the sectors that are involved," said national literacy director, Rufino Huertas.
