Team Vamos / Individual Sponsors

Twenty years ago, having exhausted her personal savings, Nina began asking friends in Europe and North America to “adopt” children she met who were suffering from malnutrition. Over the years, this simple idea has grown into hundreds of children being “adopted” and hundreds of seniors, teachers and students being sponsored by Nina’s friends and friends of friends.

Today, sponsors “adopt” children, students and elderly and provide families with food, piglets, wood stoves, and water filters and fund salaries for teachers, education and health promoters. These programs are at the core of Vamos Adelante’s activities; Nina has connected individuals in need with sponsors, initiating relationships between the two. Vamos Adelante receives hundreds of checks monthly without fail, even during the recent global economic recession.

One hundred percent of the money sent by sponsors goes directly to the child, senior or teacher being sponsored.
