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!
