Promoting health & human rights in the farthest reaches of the Amazon
One of Minga Peru's highly successful projects is the twice-weekly intercultural radio program Bienvenida Salud! (Welcome Health) that educates listeners on critical social themes such as domestic violence prevention, reproductive and sexual health, gender equality, and natural resource management. Topics are determined based on handwritten letters from listeners, which arrive at Minga Peru's central office after several days journey by boat. The radio program engages over 120,000 listeners every day in hundreds of extremely remote communities. With support from the LEX-NG Fund, Minga Peru has continued to promote its radio program and has repaired and installed loudspeakers in several isolated villages.
The Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic (LEX-NG) Fund aims to protect the last wild places in the ocean while facilitating conservation, research, education, and community development programs in the places we explore.
