We believe that training and education are essential to the development of society. Mosaiko’s mission comprises four areas of activity:

  • Mosaiko library;
  • Publications;
  • Training materials;
  • Radio programmes;
  • Websites and Social networks;
  • Conferences and Debates.
  • Civil society;
  • Local human rights groups;
  • Professionals (teachers, educators, community workers, etc.);
  • Events: social weeks and national meetings;
  • Government institutions;
  • Public servants and public sector workers (Education, Health, Justice, Police, Armed Forces, etc.).
  • Action-oriented social research.
  • Protection of human rights via litigation and establishing legal precedents;
  • Legal counseling .
  • Legal advice from citizens and institutions; </ li>
  • Judicial Follow-up on Cases of Human Rights Violation. </ li>
    </ ul>

angolaThrough combined work in these four areas, Mosaiko- Institute for Citizenship contributes to a culture of respect and the defence of human rights in Angola, promoting the growth of:

  • Democratic space within Angolan society
  • Civil society capacity
  • Citizen-centred governance

Founded upon strong evidence-based analysis of the Angolan context, Mosaiko – Institute for Citizenship provides a range of services that contribute toward;

  • Peace-building and reconciliation among Angolans;
  • Creation of a supportive environment for initiatives aimed at promoting a just and prosperous Angolan society

Mosaiko’s promotion of development is focussed on the long-term, paying particular attention to the most vulnerable and marginalised (women, orphans, the illiterate, the unemployed, low-wage informal workers, etc.). The Institute seeks to investigate the “root causes” of problematic situations and to create inclusive and participatory spaces for reflection and debate, where solutions can be achieved by Angolan society itself.

Our aim is for this research and reflection to be disseminated as widely as possible, contributing to the development of strong ( social) public opinion and a civil society with a spirit of social activism.

Mosaiko does not work “for”, but “with” Angolan society. It does not replace other civil society initiatives, but rather, fosters a supportive environment for diverse actors and initiatives, assisting and supporting their development.

The Institute’s mission is not limited to helping any one specific community but, encompasses all of Angolan society.

The Mosaiko Institute, active country-wide at local, municipal, provincial, and national levels, is focussed on contributing to a better Angola, guiding society towards developing a culture of human rights.
