About us
Tareto Maa is a grassroots project 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 member of this Kiva group who is the spokesperson of Tareto Maa is Gladys Kiranto, the founder 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.
