Since its inception, BOMA has been committed to rigorous monitoring and evaluation as a way to continually improve our program and measure its impact on the lives of women and children in the arid lands.
Upon entering REAP, trained, independent enumerators gather baseline data on participants using the BOMA Standard of Living Index (SOLI), a comprehensive survey that gauges standard of living. The SOLI is administered again at exit, to assess changes in living standards and business performance two years later.
In addition to basic information about family composition, income sources, savings, productive assets and monthly expenditures, the SOLI also aims to understand decision-making dynamics within the household, family planning knowledge and usage, and school enrollment.
Upon program exit, the degree to which individuals have progressed out of poverty is judged against six criteria in four categories. An individual who has graduated from REAP is reliably food secure, has multiple viable sources of income, is able to successfully respond to shock, and has enrolled all of their eligible girl children in primary school, collectively reflecting a transition out of extreme poverty.
