Helping Women Graduate from Extreme Poverty
The BOMA Project is a U.S. nonprofit and registered Kenyan NGO with a proven track record, measurable results and a transformative approach to alleviating poverty and building resiliency in the arid lands of rural 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.
To date, The BOMA Project has launched 1,681 micro-enterprises across Northern Kenya, impacting the lives of 5,571 adults who use the income and savings to support more than 27,800 children. Total impact: More than 33,000 women and children lifted out of extreme poverty.
