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.

One frequent misconception out there is that Mosaic takes care of orphaned and vulnerable children (OVC). We want to emphasize that WE are not the caretakers… FAMILIES are. COMMUNITIES are. Our role comes in where these families and communities caring for OVC need to be equipped with resources to be able to do what they do. They have all the love and care to give these children, but with poverty constantly on the rise, they lack the finances, resources and support systems to sustain their provision of love and care. This where Mosaic makes an impact. Rather than removing OVC from their families and/or communities and sending them into a broken system, we empower the families and communities to sustain, love and provide for the children. ...

Did you know that Mosaic developed a special application to help NGOs measure their impact?Wellbi is the product of thorough research and the real-life experiences of an OVC (orphaned and vulnerable children)-care organization in South Africa ( It is a marriage between science and real life, creating a user-friendly tool which will assist in data-driven decision-making and effective use of resources towards greater impact.Meyer and Louise Conradie founded an OVC-care organization in 2009 and, through their experiences, learnt that there is a great need for a measuring and evaluation tool specific to the OVC care sector. They realized that hard science and employees' hearts needed to be used together to ensure a true and lasting impact. Wellbi’s suitability in the impact space was soon recognized and is being used in various organizations, serving various types of beneficiaries.“Our vision is to help organizations to move beyond counting the number of beneficiaries they serve, but to quantify the change they are effecting in their lives”, Meyer Conradie, CEO Wellbi. ...

We are faced with the shocking reality that there are more than 5.2 million orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa. These are children in desperate need of hope, healing, and support. Without a dream for a future, these kids will fall into the dark cycle of poverty and crime. Research and social science shows that the best solution to care for orphaned and vulnerable children (OVC)is family-based orphan care – the best care a child can have is with a family, with someone who cares for them and a sense of belonging. Our family-based care encompasses care and support for the whole family. ... See MoreSee Less
