We are working to solve one of Africa’s toughest problems.

BOMA implements a high-impact income and savings program for ultra-poor women in the drought-threatened arid lands. We help them to start small businesses in their rural communities, so they can pay for food, school fees and medical care for their families.

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.
