Mosaic’s vision is to see that every orphan and vulnerable child across Africa has a loving and caring family, where they can be equipped to realize their God-given potential.

Mosaic is based in South Africa and we seek to surround the tens of millions of orphan and vulnerable children (OVC) and their caretakers throughout the continent of Africa, with the environment they need to flourish by uplifting the communities and foster families that care for these children. 

We are impacting more than 


orphaned children through our 3-layered approach to orphan care:



Founded in 2008, Mosaic works to accomplish its vision through the intersection of direct OVC-care, partnering with other OVC-care organizations, and serving the wider orphan care industry by building systems and facilitating communities of best practice around these systems. 

Here’s what’s truly unique about Mosaic: Mosaic has taken a systemic approach to orphan-care in order to effect change on this scale without taking its boots off the ground. Mosaic’s families live in homes surrounding one of its three brick and mortar community centers in South Africa. 

Mosaic then partners with local organizations in additional locations across the country; giving these organizations the mentorship, blueprints, guideposts, and systems needed to implement Mosaic’s OVC-care model right in their own backyard. Finally, Mosaic impacts the entire orphan care sector through building systems and facilitating communities that share best practices. There are no other known orphan-care organizations that maintains this unique three-pronged approach.

By taking an approach to orphan care that is all at once deep, systemic, and broad in its impact, Mosaic is truly revolutionizing the orphan care space across the entire continent, starting with its home base in South Africa.
