Ten Eighteen was founded in late 2008, and is a 501(c)3 organization. Importantly, 100% of your donations go to our work – we take ZERO administrative fees! We work primarily in Uganda, which is our heart’s second home. Visit our SISTER SITE, The Ndoto Collection, to get great handmade items from our women’s cooperatives in Mawanga and Namuwongo!

Founded and run by the Wright family, Ten Eighteen works with registered NGO’s in Kampala, Jinja, Bukaleba, and Tororo:

basketball camp Nsambya Kampala Uganda

* RAY OF HOPE, NAMUWONGO, KAMPALA

Our largest partner, we work with Ray of Hope to sponsor more than 35 children for school, from P1 through University and trade school. We have given out over 50 micro-business grants to women living in the slums, allowing these women to rise above terrible situations and feed, clothe, and house their children with dignity.

We also pay the salaries of two social workers, help the women’s group Nawezakana create items for the market, and support two elderly widows who have moved back to their villages with transport (for ARVs).

Hospice Jinja Uganda

* HOSPICE JINJA

One of only six hospices in Uganda, we have partnered with Hospice Jinja since 2010 by paying for a large portion of their annual fuel costs.

* ARISE AFRICA

Based in Jinja, Arise Africa has a babies home in Bukaleba. Ten Eighteen has built one school building for primary school, and is planning to get a fully functioning campus of P1-P7 built in the next few years. We also sponsor several of the babies through monthly support.

* HOSPICE TORORO

While we have been unable to financially help Uganda’s newest hospice to date, we have visited and given advice and moral support. It is our sincere desire to help them financially in 2015!

youth camp Andros Bahamas

* ANDROS, BAHAMAS

Our newest project has been a youth camp in Andros, Bahamas. We hope to expand our work there as funds become available – we’re traveling to Fresh Creek in June, 2015 to look at a few opportunities.

  1. I accidentally made my way to your blog and would just like to say that it has been a blessing reading about your organization and trips to Uganda. Uganda is very close to my heart and it is always very touching to see ministries coming to life. I wish you all the best in your endeavours and congratulations.

  2. Jennings, we chatted a while back on Twitter about my friend Pastor Samuel Namatiiti in Uganda. I’d like to introduce you to each other. If you would write me at jimdenney at comcast.net, I’ll send you Brother Samuel’s email address. God bless you. Many thanks! —Jim Denney
