The BOMA Project seeks to recruit a dynamic management professional who is able to guide a fast-growth organization to fill the position of Country Director for Kenya.
The BOMA Project is a fast-growing, award-winning organization (non-profit in US; Kenyan NGO) that is implementing a high-impact income and savings program for ultra-poor women in the Dry-lands of Africa.
We do this through the Rural Entrepreneur Access Project (REAP), an innovative two-year poverty graduation program for women living in extreme poverty in Northern Kenya.
BOMA helps pastoral women to start small businesses in their communities so they can earn a sustainable income, pay for food and medical care, send their children to school, survive drought and accumulate savings for long-term family stability. REAP was launched in 2009.
Since that time, BOMA has impacted the lives of over 7400 women and 37,000 children in the Samburu and Marsabit Counties of Northern Kenya. Our goal is to replicate and scale our program, changing the lives of 100,000 women and children by 2018.
