The program manager, Teixeira Cauanda who was speaking to Angop said that among those who were taught to read and write 17,221 are women, a fact that demonstrates the seriousness with which women face the fight against illiteracy.

He stressed that citizens were literate through the "Yes I Can" and "Like to Read and Write" methods in modules I, which corresponds to the first and second degree II (3rd and 4th degrees) and III (5th and 6th degree), of the general education system.

The manager also made a positive assessment of the literacy process in that district, thanks to the contribution of the literacy workers, who despite working in difficult conditions, have contributed to reduce illiteracy in Ambaca.
