Meet Nina

Nina in field“I, Nina Joergensen, am the Founder and Director of Vamos Adelante. I was raised in Berlin, Germany, by a German mother and a Swedish father. I was a Pan Am flight attendant for a number of years. After Pan Am ceased operations in Berlin in 1989, I headed for Madagascar on vacation. The flight was cancelled so I took the next flight available to anywhere and found myself in Guatemala where I have lived pretty much ever since. As the director and inspiration of Vamos Adelante, I spend my days driving the donated 4-wheel-drive vehicle over washes of rock and through streams to deliver supplies and aid to those families Vamos Adelante supports  and always looking for ways to guide the people out of poverty and trying to make the different projects self-sustainable.”
