The JWN Foundation, which operates under the mantra 'Transforming lives and communities for a better Jamaica', has three pillars — Education, Social Inclusion and Culture. At present, the Foundation's activities are concentrated on developing the communities surrounding J Wray and Nephew Limited's operations.
“We are truly grateful that Nestle has joined forces with us to assist the students within our communities. Through these nutritious cereals and juice mixes the students will be better equipped to learn and pursue excellence,” said Chairman of JWNF, Clement “Jimmy” Lawrence. more
