We base these processes on principles of self-reliance, sustainability, and respect for the dignity of the individual, comprehensive rural development, affirmative action for women and children for support of the traditional nuclear family.

The Common Thread of Discipleship
Every outreach of chariots of mercy foundation, whether education sponsorship, feeding the hungry, vocational outreach, or medical care, is accompanied with Biblical teaching and spiritual encouragement in the sharing of joyous life in Christ. We know that nourishing the physical needs of the people we serve is not the ultimate goal. By being built up in love, we long to see them fed spiritually and restored into right relationship with God.
Our team sees every outreach as an opportunity to answer the call of Jesus to go and make disciples. The mentors working in our Education sponsorship Outreach as well as in the community does not expect to work solely as socials workers. Their very necessary purpose on our team is to truly love and disciple the children and families that we serve. They seek out relationships with the intended goal of seeing disciples being made in the homes and schools of Kenya and this is merely one example of how each of our members seeks to first see the Cross of Jesus in how we serve others
