Kiva Lending Team: Tareto Maa
We loan because...
By empowering women in the fight for women's rights, poverty reduction, education and health promotion, we are helping to create a fairer and better world for everyone.
Tareto Maa is a community based project in Kenya, set up as a result of the vision of Gladys Kiranto. It provides refuge for girls at risk of Female Genital Mutilation and early enforced marriage. Tareto Maa also works within the wider community, supporting links with village leaders, and the church, providing education and health promotion. We are raising the profile and awareness of this organisation to all our friends on Kiva to promote their wonderful work.
Up to May, 2013 our Kiva team has had great success having bought over 15,000 loans on Kiva. We played a major part in the building of the two dormitories for the refuge, and the first classrooms of the school. We helped furnish the local church.
We are inviting you to join our team on Kiva, in order for you to be a part of Tareto Maa's success story on Kiva and in Kenya.
