18ten Ministries exists to respond to the needs of disadvantaged children in Central America. We enlist local churches and Christians to perform this work in the areas where they live. We empower them by providing what is necessary to make the ministries flourish. Our flagship ministry in Nicaragua, "Oasis de la Gracia," or "Oasis of Grace," started out as before & after school program in 2015. In 2021, it became an official Christian School for children from low-income families in Jinotepe, Nicaragua. This school, run by local Nicaraguans, is meeting the spiritual, physical, and educational needs of disadvantaged children in this region.
