About us
Tareto Maa is a grassroots nonprofit in Kenya, East Africa, whose objective is to empower the local community while eradicating the tradition of female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriages within the Maasai people.

The members of this Kiva group who are spokespersons of Tareto Maa are Gladys (TM Kenya), Jackie (TM USA), Philippe (TM Austria) and Armin (TM Germany). These members will publish project news on behalf of Tareto Maa. All other messages on the message board reflect private opinions of the group members.

The messages on the group’s board should discuss the work of Tareto Maa, further topics that relate to child rights, women's rights, community development, and the fight against gender-based violence, and also, of course, Kiva-related topics of all kinds.
