Javier Gonzales: fighting illiteracy in Columbia

Javier Gonzales from Colombia has made it his role in life to help those who are illiterate. And he does it through play.


Everything began in 1960, with a game of dominoes. The parents of his pupils at the time unfailingly beat him at dominoes - even though they couldn´t read or write. Inspired by this he invented the "abcd-espanol", a game that has so far helped over a million Latin Americans to read and write.
