Women & Youth Empowerment

Perfect Vision - Women Supporting NGO

Perfect Vision volunteering in Tanzania

The Project

Perfect Vision is a women’s empowerment organisation based in Arusha, Tanzania. The organisation was founded in 2019 by an inspiring woman called Mama Happy who lived a hard life, but still dedicated herself to helping others in whatever way she could. Perfect Vision Women  believes that our living conditions should not define who we are as human beings. Contracting HIV should not further increase the weight of an already significant burden, be it through economy or social isolation. And a monthly menstrual period should not pull children out of school. P.V.W.T believes believe they can’t do this initiative and succeed without outside help from all corners of the world: their own community, volunteers local and international and the Tanzanian government support.

From the mamas in their organisation, to the girls out of school on their periods, no one is left behind. This is the power of Perfect Vision. Their influence reaches far beyond the ten women from Perfect Vision organisation, it reaches the community. The fight for women’s equality has a long way to go here. Their sanitary pads are simply one step on a larger journey towards female empowerment and a community that support one another. This is our vision for Tanzanian society – a “Perfect Vision”.

Testimonials

"I volunteered in Perfect vision women’s group through Viva Tanzania for 3 months. I found my experience there fascinating. I had a main job during the week but nevertheless, I was looking for a volunteering experience too for the weekends. Tizia figured it out quickly, putted me in contact with Justin and Marilyn and did all the proper arrangements. My main tasks were to bring ideas about advertising, marketing, selling and made them come true. I got so involved in the project that even during my job’s lunch break during the week, I would go with Justin and Marilyn to keep helping and even share a delicious meal. What I enjoyed the most during my volunteering was learning a lot about Tanzanian culture during the meetings with Justin. A typical day would consist in working with my laptop at Justin’s office regarding product description, preparing the launch of a proper website, making calls and bringing clients to the business, learning how every product is created, planning wardrobe collections and even modelling for photo shoots with their products! At the end of each day, Justin was so kind to provide and pay for my transport back to the hostel. They are true statements of entrepreneurship and creativity and this experience with them made me realize that everyone has an entrepreneur inside ready to be successfully developed. No matter your profession (I am about to become a lawyer). This place is excellent to make a difference and even develop useful skills like talking to clients, management, accountability, and creativity."
