Our Mission


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.

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.
