Donate to Save a Life Road Safety Project
Road crashes are the number one cause of death for young people today.Every year close to 1000 youth lose their life globally as a result of road crashes.Availability of safe blood is both a short term and a long term emergency in Kenya.Every ten minutes someone requires a blood transfusion and its timely accessibility is literally matter of life and death.Kenya is currently faced with rising road crash statistics and shrinking safe blood levels in the blood bank.The challenge therefore is to create awareness on the amount of bloodshed on our roads as we reverse the current national trend through strategies that motivate and make it easier for Kenyans to donate blood.

Adopt a Chair Project
The first project the Chariots of Destiny Organization members embarked on was to donate a wheelchair a young man paralyzed from the waist down and as a result of his poor back ground; he had to crawl to the hospital on rough terrain many kilometers away because he could not afford a wheelchair. Today thousands of people are living with disabilities and do not have access to or even afford a wheelchair!The Chariots of Destiny Organization has launched a program dubbed the "Adopt a Chair Project" to provide wheelchairs to the less fortunate individuals living with disabilities!Through this project we aim to give people with disabilities the opportunity to present themselves as they are - entirely normal people with strong personalities looking for a second chance at life!
Bags of A New Destiny (BAND) project
The B.A.N.D project is an information awareness project whose main objective is to give individuals living with spinal cord injuries the information, education and resources they need to prepare them to live with their new "condition" after injury. Once people leave a rehabilitation center, they often have no further resources to assist them to cope with the changes in their lives. The Chariots of Destiny Organization has launched a project called "Bags of a New Destiny" which provides a bag full of information to each person/beneficiary living with a spinal cord injury.
The bag contains samples of healthcare products needed to manage quadriplegia or paraplegia such as catheters. It also contains information on spinal cord injury and its consequences, coping with mobility impairment, reading manuals, journals, CDs and DVDs, information on the rights of persons with disabilities, and most of the necessary information needed to learn how to live with a spinal cord injury. The Chariots of Destiny Organization is delighted to launch this first of its kind project in Kenya which has been supported by HP East Africa Limited.
