You won’t find a Mosaic office outside the United States. That’s by design.
Mosaic knows that international development of services for people with disabilities is best done in partnership. We’re big believers in accompaniment – we listen to, support and walk with local leaders and ministries to serve the world.
Mosaic’s international partnerships came to life in 1994 when faith leaders in Latvia approached us about providing coaching and other supports to a start-up organization supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Since then, we’ve helped partners start and fund work in three countries – Latvia, Romania and Tanzania.
Additionally, we’re called in to provide consultation to organizations with like-minded goals and values that need additional expertise. Mosaic is one of only 47 organizations worldwide recognized with Special Consultative Status from the United Nations for expertise in “Disability, Development and Rights.”
Entirely funded by donors, our international program changes lives around the world. Your gift supports health and happiness for people with disabilities.
Mosaic currently partners with Building a Caring Community (BCC) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania (ELCT) to provide services to more than 200 children and young adults in the Moshi area of Tanzania.
Services are primarily provided through BCC’s network of day centers in Moshi and outreach workers who visit children not able to travel to the centers on a daily basis. The workers monitor the health and nutrition of people supported, offer support and guidance to caregivers and make referrals for specialized services when necessary.
