OUR APPROACH IN ACTION

Phase  1

Children and community are inspired to dream about their future and their most urgent needs are met through grants, which help to generate sustainable income.

Phase  2

Leaders emerge and children / community flourish as young entrepreneurs – working together to build upon foundational principles learned in the first year.

Phase 3

Diversified businesses are created from ongoing micro-loans and holistic transformation takes place throughout entire communities.

PARTNER

Identify

Community and vulnerable children are identified through partnerships between chariots of mercy foundation in-country staff and community and local leaders.

PARTNER

Group Formation

Empowerment groups of 10-25 young people are formed comprised of 4-6 families whose eldest sibling is usually between the ages of 15-25. A chairperson, a secretary, and a treasurer from among each group and an adult mentor is selected.

PARTNER

Connections

Local leaders volunteer to train children/ community in their desired vocation. They are taught about their rights and how to enforce them, they obtain birth certificates and land ownership disputes are resolved.

EMPOWER

Dream Plan

The children / community engage in a powerful exercise, writing their vision for their lives on a “dream chart,” which inspires them to dream about their future for the first time in their lives.

EMPOWER

Education

Younger siblings are enrolled in school to pursue a formal education, and grants provide the funding for fees, uniforms, and school supplies.

Income Generation

Table banking grants and loans provide empowerment group members with access to capital. Self-reliance is achieved as young people meet their own needs and the needs of their siblings without outside support or intervention.

EMPOWER

Child Rights

Children and community leaders learn about child rights and how to enforce them, ensuring all children are free from abuse, neglect discrimination, and exploitation.

 

EMPOWER

Spiritual Wholeness

Group members continue to grow spiritually in community with others as they understand and experience God’s unconditional love, leaving behind former perceptions that God had abandoned or cursed them.

MULTIPLY

Giving Back

People give back to their community by employing, training, and adopting others. Personally, they are self-reliant, which motivates them to empower others.

We are chariots of mercy foundation we stand for

By the time our projects end after (what is typically) a three-year period, we expect the vast majority of farmers to be feeding their families and selling a surplus. They should be earning enough money to pay for their basic needs: education, better housing, food (when they can’t produce it themselves) and healthcare. They should be able to invest in their farms or a small business and invest in savings to help them overcome shocks such as drought or disease.

Importantly, they become donors themselves, restoring their dignity and pride.
