BOMA Project: FIGHTING POVERTY IN AFRICA…AND IT’S WORKING
Associated Organization: BOMA, Kenya
ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT: BOMA uses innovative microfinance and job-skills training programs to help the pastoral nomads of Northern Kenya to establish sustainable small businesses in their communities. In a region devastated by drought and poverty, women are using the tools of economic self-empowerment to feed their families, educate their children and pay for medical care.
LOCAL LEADERSHIP: BOMA’s economic empowerment program is led by trained Village Mentors. They are respected local residents with professional experience, such as schoolteachers and shop owners. http://bomaproject.org. Here’s how The BOMA Project works:
