Acute malnutrition is a persistent threat for #Mothers and their families in Kenya. With nearly 75% of the population living in poverty and only 25% or less of children aged 6-23 months receive a minimum acceptable diet. Acute malnutrition, particularly in women and children, reinforces inter-generational cycles of poverty.

To break this cycle, BOMA has adapted our approach to advance nutrition outcomes among the most vulnerable. Though "REAP for Nutrition," BOMA is helping mothers to lift themselves and their families out of starvation-level poverty — for good.

The drylands of Africa are home to more than 420 million people and a large majority of the world’s semi-nomadic pastoralist and agro-pastoralist populations. For thousands of years, these communities have lived in close relationship to the land, raising livestock, growing crops, harvesting natural products, and moving with the rains.

Their lifestyle requires a delicate balance – a balance that has been upended by the #ClimateCrisis. Drought and flooding has become increasingly unpredictable, and 2022 has been marked by staggering droughts that have left millions #FoodInsecure.

Since 2019, BOMA has employed an adaptation of our model known as #GreenREAP to graduate women and youth out of extreme poverty in Africa's drylands and create an enabling environment for #SustainableEnterprise.
