Mingamos catalyzes the collaboration between social, environmental, and cultural projects to help them better the experience of each member involved.
The Mingamos vision:
We are Mingamos and we believe that each one of us can contribute something to improve the world around us. For us, solidarity is a very powerful engine of change. However, we are all familiar with the same challenges that come with coordinating projects of multiple volunteers, from the preparation to the rotation of the teams.
For this reason, Mingamos exists to facilitate each act of solidarity. It exists so we can focus on simply getting it done.
The people who participate in the creation in Mingamos are NGO coordinators, foundations, volunteers, managers of corporate social responsibility, university professors, among others. Their support created what today is Mingamos and what it will be tomorrow: a human solution at the service of solidarity.
We created Mingamos so that no act of solidarity goes unnoticed.

Who started Mingamos: Mingamos started with a small group of friends who wanted to design a solution to a problem constantly found in various organizations and in various initiatives driven by volunteers: the operational burden of collaboration between volunteers, coordinators, and others. Based on their technological knowledge and experience they decided to solve this problem by putting the coordination of projects into the hands of each person to return agility to project management so that everyone can focus on their most important tasks and enjoy the experience of improving communities.
To involve oneself in a volunteer project means to seek to contribute to your community, and in order to put this desire into practice this desire should neither be difficult nor frustrating for anyone. The only challenge should be to solve the problem identified, but to organize the project itself should not be a problem. These were the driving factors that inspired Mingamos. HOwever, all of this would be nothing without each of the people who contributed to the development and shared their knowledge and experiences. Mingamos started because we did not just want to discuss the problem, we wanted to solve it. We hope that Mingamos contributes to you as well. If you feel the same, share your experiences so that all can see that it is easy to collaborate on a project with good tools and support.
