UNION GARDENS INFANT SCHOOL

One of the largest projects to date has been the establishment of the Union Gardens Infant School in southwest St. Andrew. The state-of-the-art early childhood institution designed especially for students aged three to six was completed in 2015. The project, costing just under $200 million dollars, was made possible due to the involvement of several public and private entities, including the National Baking Company Foundation.

The school is built to be environmentally-friendly with features such as solar power and rainwater harvesting. It is completely designed with the age of its students in mind — from the AstroTurf playground to the specially-designed restrooms. Among the other benefits are two meals per day and a school bus for transportation to and from school.

The Foundation has contributed to close to 30 charitable organizations including:
