The Federation of Community Tourism Organizations (FECTO) welcomed representatives from TARA at the African Conservation Center (ACC) on 29 April, 2015 . The two teams discussed collaboration to promote their shared objectives regarding community development in Kenya.

FECTO is an umbrella body of community-based tourism enterprises in Kenya. Their work complements TARA’s conservation efforts which include the involvement of communities in the management and conservation of rock art through the development of responsible rock art tourism products. The two parties have agreed to work together by looking at ways to leverage both organizations’ networks and expertise.
