BOMA is building resilience to end extreme poverty in the places most impacted by climate change. Now more than ever, there is an urgent need for solutions that build resilience to economic and environmental shocks among the most vulnerable. The COVID-19 pandemic has plunged an additional 70 to 100 million people into extreme poverty and climate change threatens millions more.
In response, BOMA is ambitiously expanding our proven poverty graduation model to 3 million women, youth, and refugees by 2027. LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR MODEL ›
BOMA’s work is growing rapidly across Africa’s drylands. In Kenya, we’re preparing to enroll new participants in Wajir, Garissa, Turkana, Samburu, Moyale, and Marsabit, Kenya. Even more participants are being reached in Kenya through the government adoption of BOMA’s approach. Through strategic partnerships with organizations including Caritas Switzerland and Danish Refugee Council, BOMA is also reaching populations in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ethiopia, and Uganda.

A recent Randomized Controlled Trial (#RCT) from the Feed the Future MRR Innovation Lab found that REAP participants had, on average, 324% more in business #assets, 32% more in total annual household cash #income and 509% more in cash #savings than non-participants in communities where no BOMA programming took place. Those benefits generated a total return-on-investment (#ROI) of 3.1, meaning that every $1 invested in REAP delivers about $3 in benefits to BOMA #entrepreneurs.
