Who we are

Welcome to Perfect Vision Women Tanzania!

Perfect Vision Women Tanzania is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering women and girls in Arusha, Tanzania. Our journey began in 2019 when the late “Mama Happy,” an extraordinary woman who overcame immense challenges in her own life, founded the organization. Despite facing unimaginable difficulties, Mama Happy’s unwavering dedication to helping others led her to establish Perfect Vision Women Tanzania. Her vision was simple yet profound: to create a safe and supportive environment where women and girls could openly discuss the daily struggles they face.

Following Mama Happy’s sudden death her daughter, Editha Faustine, made the courageous decision to leave her job and continue her mother’s legacy. Since 2021, Editha and her team have been tirelessly managing the organization, ensuring that Mama Happy’s legacy lives on.

In Tanzania, HIV remains a prevalent and stigmatized issue, particularly affecting women who often find themselves abandoned and marginalized. Perfect Vision Women Tanzania was established as a beacon of hope for these women and girls, providing them with a platform to support one another, overcome stigma, acquire new skills, and improve their lives.

Our organization focuses on four key thematic areas: health promotion and empowerment, economic empowerment, gender and humanitarian assistance, and education support for women. One of our flagship programs is a year-long training initiative for young girls from the community. Throughout the program, participants receive training in various skills such as sewing, business management, soap making, and beading. Upon completion, graduates receive a certificate and a sewing machine to kickstart their entrepreneurial journey. Additionally, we offer small loans to help them establish their own businesses and provide education in subjects such as English, health, and life skills.

The young girls selected for our program come from diverse and challenging backgrounds, facing numerous obstacles in their daily lives. Through our holistic approach, we aim to uplift and empower these girls, equipping them with the tools they need to build a brighter future.

At Perfect Vision Women Tanzania, we believe in the power of community, resilience, and empowerment. Join us as we continue to make a positive impact on the lives of women and girls in Tanzania. Together, we can create a future filled with hope, opportunity, and possibility.
