About Us

Wellbi is the product of thorough research and the real-life experiences of an OVC (orphaned and vulnerable children)-care organisation in South Africa (www.mosaicsa.org). It is a marriage between science and real life, creating a user-friendly tool, which will assist in data-driven decision-making and effective use of resources towards greater impact.

Meyer and Louise Conradie founded an OVC-care organisation in 2009 and through their experiences learnt that there is a great need for a measuring and evaluation tool that is specific to the OVC care sector. They realised that hard science and the hearts of employees needed to be used together, to ensure a true and lasting impact. Wellbi’s suitability in the impact space was soon recognised and it is being used in a wide range of organisations, serving various types of beneficiaries.

“Our vision is to help organisations to move beyond counting the number of beneficiaries they serve, but to quantify the change they are effecting in their lives”, Meyer Conradie, CEO Wellbi.
