Originado en pueblos indígenas de Sudamérica, MINK’A significa trabajo comunitario con un componente vital de reciprocidad. La KFLA ha transformado este concepto en un programa de intercambio de talento para el bien común. Si tu Proyecto necesita apoyo (ideas frescas, conocimiento especializado, asesoría técnica, etc.) ¿qué mejor que acudir a otra u otro becario Kellogg?

Te vinculamos con una becaria o un becario con las habilidades y conocimientos apropiados para tu proyecto

El becario o becaria Kellogg se contactará contigo para participar de manera voluntaria en la forma que sea más beneficiosa para ambos

Cuéntanos lo que necesita tu Proyecto!

KFLA provee los gastos de transportación cuando se necesite

Mink’a es muy sencillo.

Aquí te decimos como obtener ayuda para tu proyecto

How to Get Involved...


We believe every one of us has something of value to share with someone else. Examples of what may be offered or requested include,

  • Cultural Gifts: Elders. Brokers. Translators.
    Explain customs, norms, rituals, and values so that the projects are respectful and responsive of the beliefs and practices of the community and builds on their assets.
  • Intellectual Gifts: Knowledge. Experience. Understanding.
    Assistance with business development, communications, event planning, fundraising, legal support, marketing, management, research, social media, and strategic planning.
  • Material Gifts: Supplies. Goods. Commodities.
    Donations of food, clothes, blankets, books, school supplies, health care supplies, bicycles, furniture, old cell phones, soap, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, batteries, and band-aids.
  • Social Gifts: Influence. Connections. Authority.
    Share business and social contacts who can generate insight, engage in a community service project, or inspire others to make a difference or affect change.
  • Spiritual Gifts: Listen. Discern. Invocation.
    Help people along their spiritual path to discover their life purpose, overcome obstacles, and put pain and grief into perspective using a variety of faith traditions.
  • Vocational Gifts: Skilled Labor. Physical Work. Sweat Equity.
    Support from skilled teachers, gardeners, chefs, health professionals, artists, mechanics, machinists, engineers, carpenters, welders, plumbers, and sanitation workers.

Often, a Mink’a takes place virtually (via phone calls and email). However, funding is available to assist with travel for the Fellows who are participating in the project if on-site and face-to-face interaction is needed.
