    Damiao has taught his mother Sandra to read


    It has only been a year since Sandra Maria de Andrade woke up to the wondrous world of reading.

    One afternoon after work, the rubbish picker from north-eastern Brazil was lying exhausted in a hammock when her youngest son, Damiao Sandriano, invited her to take a look at a book.

    “Mum, would you like to read with me?” he asked. “It’s a story, and it has pictures.”

    At the time, the 42-year old was unable to write her own name.
