How PTA Started
After completing two successful years of service as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cameroon,
Tara Lynn Smith
saw firsthand the needs of her community. Upon her return to the United States, she incorporated PTA to answer continuing needs for sustainable development, connect communities in America to those in Cameroon -- and live up to her title as Maveu Napteu ("queen of fixing things").
