Hector Mendiola, a retired pediatrician from Mexico City, who was living in Utah, noticed that many of the children of migrant workers were illiterate in their native tongue and so he developed, along with Fred Berthong, a local community volunteer, a computer assisted program to help Hispanic youth who were illiterate in their native language to learn to read and write in Spanish. The CALFNES program (Computer Assisted Language For Non English Speakers), which they created, and is now in the public school system, got the attention of the Mexican Federal Government, which in turn has led to recognition and connections with other federal officials and private businesses who provide educational programs to Mexicans living abroad. Other successes then followed Dr. Mendiola's success.
