The Minga is a cultural practice that still exists in rural areas of the Saraguro culture. It is the activity of uniting our workforce to achieve a common goal of building family and community spaces. La Minga is one of the moments of the Saraguro people, where it is possible to materialize the ancient Andean principles of community life. For these constructions we use natural and economic methods, techniques and materials with minimal environmental impact.
