In an interview with Prensa Latina, Matoko mentioned the study opportunities that Cuba has offered many young Africans along the years, with thousands of graduates from several specialties in recent decades.

Matoko underlined UNESCO’s recognition of these actions as an important contribution to the work of supporting Africa.

Matoko highlighted the links and joint work in various initiatives with the Cuban National Commission for UNESCO and the Permanent Mission of Cuba to UNESCO.

During his interview for Prensa Latina, Matoko reiterated the priority UNESCO gives Africa in the areas of education, science, culture and communication.

“We continue a special support program for the continent that dates back to the 1980s, and we do so through more than 30 national and regional field offices, and in coordination with the African Union and other organizations,” he said.

The inclusive access of girls to education, cultural identity, the study of history, the recognition of their rich heritage and the culture of peace stand out among the goals framed in the Agenda 2063 as set by the African Union to promote the socioeconomic development.
