Pretty’s Story

Pretty Phungwako is one of the millions of orphaned children in South Africa. Pretty’s life changed from depression and hopelessness, to being an inspiration and a role model in her community. “The Phungwako family moved into a Mosaic House in 2010, and since then our lives have never been the same. My name in Martha Phungwako, I am 48 years old and my hobbies are reading, being around positive people and spending time with my family. I am taking care of four wonderful children: Pretty, Masedi, Bongani and Odirile. Pretty is the oldest, and she’s been busy with her nursing course at Ukwazi School of Nursing, and was at the top of her class in 2017. Since Mosaic took us in, then wonders started to happen. I wasn’t gonna be able to take her to “tertiary”, but Mosaic has given her an opportunity to further her studies through Mosaic After-School Bursaries. This is not all – she is a great inspiration to all the Mosaic children; they look up to her, ans she even helps in the After-School program at the centre.”

We are extremely proud of one of our very own Mosaic children. General Mkwanazi received admission to study BA Public Relations at the University of Johannesburg. We are proud to have him as part of our Mosaic family. General describes himself:“I`m a young man who grew up without both parents, I was raised by my aunt who took me from the age of 6 months and who groomed me till I became the young man I am today through God`s wisdom. I believe that it takes a village to raise a child I am thankful that Mosaic has been with me through all the difficult times and the best times of my life. I want a bright future for myself and my dream is to build a non-government organisation where I`m going to build children and adults who stay at the streets a shelter –“there’s no recycle bin designed for humans.” ...
