Mosaik was founded in 1997 as a non profit making, limited liability company. It arose from the „Steirischen Vereinigung zugunsten behinderter Kinder und Jugendlicher“ (STVBKJ – Styrian Association in Aid of Handicapped Children and Juveniles) founded in 1973. Mosaik's sphere of activity lies in caring for, advising and encouraging handicapped people from childhood to adulthood. The guiding principle behind our various activities is to enable the handicapped to participate in the life of the community.
