Helping Women Graduate from Extreme Poverty
The BOMA Project is a U.S. nonprofit and Kenyan NGO with a proven track record, measurable results and a transformative approach to alleviating poverty and building resiliency in the drylands of Africa. Our Rural Entrepreneur Access Project (REAP) replaces aid with sustainable income and helps women to “graduate” from extreme poverty by giving them the tools they need to start small businesses in their communities. With this new and diversified source of income, they can feed their families, pay for school fees and medical care, accumulate savings for long-term stability, survive drought and adapt to a changing climate.
Since January 2009, BOMA has launched 1,973 micro-enterprises across Northern Kenya, changing the lives of more than 38,000 women and children. Our goal is to lift 100,000 women and children out of extreme poverty within five years.
