Caracas, Nov 7 (Prensa Latina) In the last two decades, the Venezuelan government’s education policy has allowed 1,870 million people become literate, the president of the Robinson Foundation, Lilian Oropeza, announced on Wednesday.
Thanks to the cooperation agreement between Cuba and Venezuela, more than 1,27 million Venezuelan citizens completed their sixth-grade studies with the Yo si puedo (Yes I can) education program, Oropeza said in an interview with Venezolana de Television.
The official highlighted the work done by the Bolivarian Revolution to guarantee the right to education, in order to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the founding of the Robinson State Mission and the 13th anniversary of the declaration of this country as a territory free of illiteracy.
He recalled that in 2015 the Robinson Productive Mission was created, which also develops the potential of communities through the creation of productive units in the areas of textiles, livestock, among others.
The president of the Robinson Foundation pointed out that 30 percent of the literate went through other educational programs such as the Ribas Mission and the Sucre Mission, through which they finished their high school and university studies, respectively.
