Tabadom Holding, Inc., a producer of handmade cigars for different brands and premium brands, is committed to its people and the communities they are part of. The company officially inaugurated Tabadom’s Learning Center (Centro de Enseñanza Tabadom) and a Softball Field.
The Centro de Enseñanza Tabadom is located next to the company premises in Villa Gonzalez (Santiago) and will, in a first phase, offer basic, intermediate, and advanced extracurricular English lessons to the employees’ children ranging between 6 and 14 years of age. The complimentary English classes will be conducted from Monday to Thursday by professional English teachers and will help the children to start learning and/or enhancing their English skills. In a second phase, the Centro de Enseñanza Tabadom will gradually extend its offer to include other activities to complement the children’s education, thus allowing them to get access to more opportunities in the future.
