The Minga Foundation partners with individuals and community-based organizations in underserved communities to improve socioeconomic conditions and health equity. Through collaborative and respectful partnerships, we build capacity, create and strengthen networks, and provide resources based on locally-identified needs. Our goal is to empower those seeking a healthier future for their communities.
We envision a world where all communities are able to improve their own health and wellbeing.
The Minga Foundation supports community-based and locally-driven efforts. Based on our experience and values as an organization, we hold the following beliefs about working with communities to help them achieve their goals:
*All individuals have the right to reach their full human potential.
*We all share a moral responsibility to create an equitable and just world.
*Partnerships based on trust, respect and transparency are essential for responsible development work.
*Mutual enrichment and growth is an essential part of international relationships.
*Communities should identify and address their own needs.
*Individuals and communities can generate powerful social change.
*We must give voice to traditionally underrepresented members of our partner communities.
