Perfect Vision Women Group is a women’s empowerment group based in Arusha, Tanzania. The group 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 Group 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 girls out of school. P.V.W.G believes they can’t do this initiative and succeed without outside help from all corners of the world and  their own community; volunteers local and international and the Tanzanian government support.


In this project volunteers will be able to choose what to do when working with PVWG, they do different activities from which they raise money to support themselves and their children.
