Minga = collaborative work toward shared goals.

Since 2003, the Minga Foundation has partnered with community-based organizations in the Global South to create healthy, powerful, equitable, and sustainable communities. 


We aim to catalyze the work of our partners – organizations often overlooked by traditional funding structures – as they imagine, create, and improve local infrastructure for community health and wellbeing.


Featured Partner: Lighthouse Foundation of Chicagoland

Minga is grateful to expand our work to include a U.S.-based partner, Lighthouse Foundation of Chicagoland. LF’s research-based Black Queer Equity Index targets workplace marginalization of Black LGBTQ+ people as a social determinant of health.


Minga enters this partnership recognizing that anti-Blackness and anti-Queerness are urgent problems of healthcare access in the United States and throughout the world.
