"See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually see the face of My Father who is in heaven." - Matthew 18:10
Hi friends! If you're not familiar with 18ten (www.18ten.org), we are a 501(c)3 that partners with local churches in Central America to help them help disadvantaged children.
You may know that I spent a few years doing mission work in Nicaragua. As God would have it, 18ten's primary ministry is based in Nicaragua! When living there, I had the privilege of teaching English at a private Christian academy. Now, God has put me on the administrative side of 18ten helping to establish a similar school whose mission is specifically to reach the most disadvantaged children in a rural area of Nicaragua. I feel honored to play a role in what God is doing to help the least of these in a country that I dearly love.
Educational opportunities in Nicaragua are limited, especially for children from low-income families. The Oasis Academy seeks to bridge that gap.
The Oasis Academy will open next February, but we are working hard to prepare now. Would you consider contributing to our virtual school supply drive and sharing this opportunity with your circles? As you can see from this list, any amount can truly make a difference.
Suggested donation amounts*:
$7 (avg. cost of pencils, crayons, & erasers)
$12 (craft supplies & study tools)
$20 (avg. cost of notebooks & folders)
Total cost of supplies for one child: $49
*cost is based on what one child will need for an entire year enrolled at The Oasis Academy*

Thank you for considering!
God bless you,
