Canberra, July 28, 2022- A new graduation of the Cuban literacy campaign “Yes, I can” took place in the Aboriginal community of Tennat Creek in the Northern Territory. This campaign, which has the advice of Cuban specialists, is implemented by the Australian Literacy for Life Foundation.

The graduation was attended by the Cuban ambassador to Australia, Ariel Lorenzo Rodríguez, who highlighted the praiseworthy results of the application of the “Yes, I can” method in Australia, which since 2012 has graduated more than 300 students in thirteen Aboriginal communities in New South Wales, Queensland and the Northern Territory.

Likewise, the Cuban diplomat took the opportunity to ratify Cuba's solidarity commitment to continue supporting the implementation of this noble literacy program, which is already part of the ties of friendship and cooperation that unite both countries.

Tennant Creek is a remote Aboriginal community located in the Barkly region of the Northern Territory, 990 km from the city of Darwin. It has a population of approximately 3000 people and the program will be delivered by the Cuban specialist consultant Felix Hernandez.
