BENEFITING: The BOMA Project

BOMA Interns

THE STORY:

"No project has ever given us hope like this one. This is something that will stay. This is something within us." - Holiya Eisimlesebe, Isokhabani Business Group, Nahagan Village (pictured left)  

The BOMA Project helps women in Northern Kenya to start small businesses in villages threatened by drought and a changing climate. With this new and diversified source of income, they can feed their families, pay for school fees and medical care, and accumulate savings for long-term stability.

We (the Summer 2014 BOMA interns) are excited about BOMA's impact on the younger generations. 

Help us raise $2,200 to fund 2 villages (8 diverse businesses) and impact 24 women and 120 children. Together, we can create something that will stay.

The minimum donation is $10, a life-changing amount in a region where the average income is less than $1 a day. 

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 remote, rural communitites. 

BOMA's impact evaluations show that after one year, REAP participants increased school expenditures by 921%, and after three years, 78% more children are enrolled in school.When BOMA business groups give loans, 25% are used for school fees.So far, BOMA has changed the lives of 32,200 children in one of the poorest, hardest places on the planet.

Your contributions will make a real difference in the lives of women and children in Northern Kenya. We hope you will help us reach our goal! 

Asante (thank you), 

Kate and Clare
