Team Vamos / Volunteers

Vamos Adelante operates on a very small budget. One hundred percent of the “sponsor” money goes directly to the sponsored activity and about 97% of the annual donations go to specific activities. Therefore, most of Vamos Adelante’s core activities are carried out by a team of exceptionally dedicated volunteers.

Dr. Rene, a retired Guatemalan pediatrician, oversees Vamos Adelant’s free weekly medical clinic where she is sometimes assisted by other Spanish-speaking volunteer doctors and health professionals.

Other volunteers provide Vamos Adelante with teaching, communication and administration skills either from abroad or while living close to Vamos Adelante project for an extended period.

Andrew and Adrianne Marinkovich have created video, photography and web support.
