BOMA is working to lift three million people out of extreme poverty — defined as living on less than $2.10 per day — by 2027. Our mission is to to provide the people and governments of Africa’s drylands with economic inclusion programs that increase resilience to multiple crises.

Founded 15 years ago to eliminate extreme poverty among pastoralist women in Kenya, BOMA has since transformed the lives of more than 350,000 women, youth and refugees in multiple countries. BOMA stands out for its focus on last mile populations of the drylands of Africa, who are most at risk to shocks from climate change and COVID-19, tech savvy and data driven approach, impressive graduation rate, and 99% local structure based in Africa.
