It was a very independent program well organised most of the time. I took part in the colombia bilingue english teaching fellowship

The project of Minga House is only organized to receive students of the health area, very interesting work and that they have been doing for about 3 years. I had the opportunity to go to two villages with the health personnel and developed a punctual work of paintings with the children.
Recently, Minga House has begun to receive volunteers from other areas (in which I am included) and the fact is that they are not being able to integrate into work in the local community (what happened to me also happened to other volunteer colleagues).
I returned to Portugal earlier than planned.

Amazing staff, great experience. Locals are very nice and you don't have to spend much because food is very cheap. I would recommend it. Thank you Minga!
