Review for The BOMA Project, Manchester Center, VT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I saw first hand the work of BOMA in 2010 when I traveled to Kenya and again in 2013.
After seeing the work they are doing and meeting the women and villagers where BOMA works and following the scope of their work, I highly recommend them.
They are working with those who are forgotten, bringing education, training and hope to villages where many of the men have to leave for long periods of time to find food for their livestock, leaving the women behind to find a way to support their families and educate their children in their absence. Small groups of women are given training and a small amount of money to jump start small businesses to help support their families and save money for emergencies.
The women are given the education and mentoring to be successful in their endeavors.
Those that work with them are Kenyans like them from the same tribes....rather than someone from "outside" telling them what and how to do it.
This is a recipe for success and it has been!
Our family Foundation has funded their work since 2010 and are proud to support BOMA's work.
