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

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I have known Kathleen Colson, the founder of the BOMA Project, since the early 1990’s when our children went to school together here in Vermont. In 2001 we travelled with her to Kenya to photograph the Maasai people for Getty Images. Since then Kathleen has developed and expanded the BOMA Project making a reality of her dream.
Kathleen has been an inspiration to my husband and I, and we have supported BOMA from its home base here in Manchester, VT. This spring we had the opportunity to visit Maralal in Samburu County, in northern Kenya. It was deeply moving to see first-hand the profound positive transformations this project made in the lives of these women and their families. We have been believers in The BOMA Project for years, but meeting these proud BOMA business owners really brought the power of this program home to us.
