About us

Founded in 1997 by Dominican missionaries, the Angolan Institute Mosaiko was the first non-profit institution to explicitly take the promotion of human rights in Angola as its mission.

Guided by a strong social commitment, it aims for respect for human dignity and the development of Angolan society, with the contribution of one and all.
