Thank you for considering Ten Eighteen! One great thing to note is that 100% of donations go to those in need - we take ZERO administrative costs or salaries!

Your money will help with our ongoing projects in Uganda:

* Sponsoring school fees for children, from primary through university. Be
* Giving micro-business grants to single mothers in the slums of Kampala
* Paying the salaries of 2 special social workers
* Building a primary school in the village of Bukaleba
* Paying for fuel for Hospice Jinja
* Assisting Hospice Tororo
* Sponsoring orphans at Arise Africa babies home, primary school, and secondary school

Every little bit helps! In Uganda, your dollar goes very far, so no donation is too small. Please visit our website, our blog, and our Facebook page for all the most current information on what's happening.

It's been awhile since I've updated - with moving to and then back from Nicaragua, Ten Eighteen was semi-dormant for awhile. But in 2018, we've been blessed with some organizations who have made donations, and are once again able to provide sponsorships for a few kids. Currently, we have 1 in university, and 2 entering this month. There are a handful of others who we used to be able to sponsor for secondary school who are desperate for sponsors, so we are going to try to help them by the first term (January 2019). We thank you for your help!!

The photo is Andrew Oyana and his mother Mary - we put Andrew's brother Festo through university where he got a degree in law. His mother has been an active participant with Ten Eighteen over the years, from Nawezakana women's group to the Ndoto cooperative. We are praying we can get Andrew to university this year, as he had to defer last year for lack of funds. He's been accepted for IT.

When I was in Uganda last month, we found out that there were 134 kids on waiting list to be sponsored so they can go to school in 2016.

134. It broke my heart! We already sponsor 35, and, without recruiting sponsors, there's not room in the budget to take on any more. But 134 kids...

So we have started a sponsorship drive to get ALL of these kids sponsored for the 2016 school year! You can follow on I'm posting a photo (where available) and bio of each child until the child is sponsored.

We have a 10 year old who's never gone to school. We have teens who are still at primary school level, and 20 year olds in early secondary school. It's heartbreaking...

You can REWRITE A CHILD'S FUTURE TODAY! Follow the campaign on Facebook, and sponsor a child. It's only $7.50 to $25 a month, and you can set up a recurring donation here on GoFundMe. Make a difference!

We returned from a team trip last week - it was such a great two weeks! All of our project partners are continuing with such great work, and we are blessed to be a part of all God is doing through them and Ten Eighteen. We will be having a child sponsorship drive soon, as we have 150+ kids who need individual sponsors - for as little as $7.50/month you can sponsor a child for school!

I just got our October tickets! So far, I have 2 people going with me. We may have a professional videographer, which would be amazing! I know it's only May, but the summer will fly by and it'll be here before you know it. I'm excited!

Our ladies co-ops are going full speed ahead, and our kids have started their 2nd school term this month. It's hard to believe how fast they're growing up - some of those who were wee things when we started sponsoring them are in secondary school and doing great.

Interested in sponsoring a child? We'd love to have you as a partner!
With Marvin and Hope at the babies home
