Cabana Sisters Bread Bakery was established in 2002 by the General Council under the leadership of Sr. M. Lawrence Namata the former Mother General. It was spearheaded by the late Sr. Maria Gerald Mbaaga Nabaterega the then Treasurer General together with Sr. Rita Namayanja the Assistant treasurer who was on the ground to monitor the process of establishing the Bakery with the necessary requirements.
- It was started with the following primary objectives
- To support the General Treasury to meet the needs and requirements of the Students
- Provide Bread to the Old and Sick Sisters in the Institute of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix.
- To provide practical ground to our students from Ulrika Institute of Home Economics.
- To provide employment to the orphans, school dropouts and youth in the locality.
Cabana Sisters Bread Bakery is situated along Kampala – Entebbe International Airport highway, 12 miles from Kampala the capital, opposite Kawuku trading center, behind the Mother House of the Sisters of Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix-Ggogonya.
At present the project is under the Management of the four (4) Sisters appointed by the General Council namely:
- Sr. Maria Immaculate Nabatanzi – General Manager
- Sr. Maria Justine Grace Nantongo – Finance and Marketing Manager
- Sr. Maria Josephine Namuddu – Production Manager
- Sr. Maria Coltida Nambirige – Packing and stores manager
The above sisters are supported by twenty (20) support staff both men and women.
We thank the four groups who have sustained the bakery.

Other customers include hotels, supermarkets, Institutions, retail shops and individual customers in Entebbe and Kampala.
