Mission Statement

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.

Description

We envision a world where all communities are able to improve their own health and wellbeing.

Consistent with our goal to empower those seeking a healthier future for their communities, all of our work is directed by our partners. Our role is to facilitate their efforts, which we do by building capacity and networks, providing resources and collaborating with all stakeholders. We aim to facilitate processes that are community-owned, transparent, sensitive to local culture, and give voice to those who have been marginalized, including women and children.

In the short-term, we aim for outcomes that include community-owned projects, broadened capacity, higher levels of capital and greater self-efficacy. Through this work, our broader, long term goal is to improve community and family health, increase health equity and empower families and communities.
