Better late than never

25 June 2013

doña_mManuela Hernández Velasquez of Tuxtepec, Oaxaca had to drop out of school after only one year.

“My uncle Don Fernando Campos helped me enter school, but the following year, I already had to wash and iron, and they couldn’t let me go because they needed my work.”

Her work has kept her busy for some time now, but she at least learned to read…  and has kept up with her reading until she could find the time to sit down and  finish her formal education.

Recently, she did.  And,  through the State’s IEEA (Instituto Estatal de Educación para los Adultos) she just obtained her primary school certification the same day as her birthday.

Doña Manuela was born 17  June 1913.
