MINN was founded because of a problem. A development worker had recently moved to Minnesota from Washington, D.C., and was working to send medical supplies for pediatric heart surgeries to China. The materials were stuck in customs and needed to reach their destination. The development worker was at a loss for how to move forward. “Who can I call to move the materials through customs? Who knows the right person to ask?” In D.C., those answers were readily known with established connections. “Where is the Minnesota international NGO network that I can rely on? Where are my people?” Thus, MINN was born! 12 years later, MINN continues to foster connections through regular in person networking and education events, and now we have created a virtual space to do the same - the MINN Member Facebook page. Members, join to find and post job and networking opportunities, engage with member only content, and connect with other international practitioners and supporters located in Minnesota! Need to navigate customs in Kenya? There is a MINN member who has done it before! Looking for a model on sustainable agriculture practices in arid climates? Ask MINN! Is your organization hosting its annual fundraiser? Leading a discussion? Sponsoring a documentary screening? Share with MINN members! Support and engage with our community - hope to see you there!
