I have had the privilege of working with founder Kathleen Colson and her team for the past year, helping them refine and execute communications strategy. Our firm has substantial experience with NGOs and developing world issues. We find BOMA to have an extraordinarily disciplined, effective, and original strategy. They are tightly focused on their target area and target clients -- some of the poorest people in some of the most difficult terrain in the Horn of Africa -- and they produce extraordinary results, including a 97 percent success rate for business start-ups after three years. These guys are the real deal, putting everything they can into developing self-sustaining businesses, developed and mentored by locals, with a model that far outperforms typical microfinance. We are honored to be able to help them tell their story -- dig into the statistics on their site and see for yourself how impressive it is.

As an advisor to BOMA, I am always impressed with the high level of commitment, efficiency and positive impact demonstrated by the organization. They partner with the communities they serve, basing programs on actual needs of the people on the ground, and employing and training local Kenyans to implement the projects. They smartly use monitoring and evaluation tools to constantly measure their impact and tweak programs as necessary. With this effective and successful model of international development, BOMA is on a trajectory to expand rapidly in the coming months and years.
