The BOMA Project

Providing financial, life skills, and business training to ultra-poor rural women in Northern Kenya to improve their economic potential

The BOMA Project is a non-governmental organization (NGO) that was founded in 2005 to help ultra-poor rural women living in Northern Kenya, a severely dry region, support themselves and their families.

UNFCU Foundation is supporting BOMA’s Rural Entrepreneur Access Project (REAP). This poverty graduation initiative enrolls women in a two-year program that includes financial, life skills, and business training. Participants also receive sustained mentoring and access to join a savings pool to expand their business.

Program goals:
  • Provide a cash grant of $77.00 to each program participant so they can start their small business. The women receive support, mentorship, and guidance to gain financial security to become empowered to make household decisions.
  • Offer REAP to 165 ultra-poor women supporting 825 children in Northern Kenya
Your donation of:
  • $50.00 will help provide business, financial, and life skills training for one woman, who is responsible for an average of five children
