BOMA has now formed strong partnerships with several leading INGOs including: Mercy Corps, Catholic Relief Services, and ACDI/VOCA. These partnerships are supporting scale up of REAP to reach thousands of new participants funded through USAID’s Feed the Future and Food for Peace programs.
The REAP program has gone on to launch in two new counties, so it is now working in six of the poorest and most drought-affected counties in northern Kenya: Samburu, Turkana, Isiolo, Wajir, Garissa and Marsabit. BOMA has also now successfully entered a new country, launching in Karamoja, Uganda.
Since Spring Impact and BOMA worked together, the Government of Kenya’s Programme for Rural Outreach of Financial Innovations and Technologies (PROFIT) had made the transformative power of REAP available to 1,600 women in Samburu, placing them on an upward trajectory out of extreme poverty.
Leveraging partnerships will be central to BOMA’s goal of scaling the transformative power of REAP.
