Since 2006, Nubem attended more than 500 children and adults. Today they continue its program for 70 children, 40 adults and 40 elderly
A place where every child received personal care, love, literacy support, explored their imagination with art and crafts, built confidence in themselves by improving their reading and writing skills. Nubem had attended more then 200 children over those years continuing until now from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm
