“Our eyes have been opened.”

“Now we can afford to feed our children, and take them to school even if there is drought.”

“No project has given us hope like this one. This is something that will stay. This is something within us.”

“We had forgotten how to save, forgotten the old ways. BOMA has come to remind us of what we used to know. We must save for times when life is hard.”

“No one should underestimate the strength of these women.”

“We will be strong and work together to see our business succeed. We will help ourselves.”

EMPOWERING WOMEN TO END EXTREME POVERTY

The BOMA Project implements a high-impact program for ultra-poor women in the drought-threatened arid lands of Africa – the true “last mile” of economic and social isolation.

Operating at the nexus of four critical United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we are empowering women, building resilient families, installing hope, and transforming the conversation about what is possible.

HELP FAMILIES OVERCOME
EXTREME POVERTY.

OUR VISION:

In March 2018, BOMA surpassed the audacious goal of lifting 100,000 women and children in remote northern Kenya out of extreme poverty by the end of 2018. Today we want to do what many tell us is impossible—reach one million women and children by 2022 in order to help these families avert a crisis of survival.

“BOMA’s gender-focused approach to building resilience in ultra-poor communities in Eastern Africa has demonstrated not only proof that the model works, but evidence that it can be scaled for major impact.”

– Thad Hutton, RA5 Foundation
