Pipe Bike

Thinking about the well-being and quality of life of children, the foundation carries out a series of inclusion projects that will be the perfect complement for children with complex diseases to have access to all those therapies and activities that will transform their lives.

More information

Pipe Bike is a project that was born from Yadit Chapeta, a volunteer angel who came to Fundación Proyecto Unión two years ago motivated by the desire to serve children with difficult illnesses and the vast majority abandoned by their families. She had the fortune to meet Pipe, an 8-year-old boy from the Hogar Santa Rita de Cascia and established a very special connection, one day when he was giving his legs a massage, Verónica, a girl from the home in bicycle, he squeezed her hand and she simply interpreted his gesture and said: “Pipe get strong and let’s get a bicycle, I’m going to give it to you.”

From that moment on, Yadit, together with his family and friends, thought about the great benefits that this resource would bring to hundreds children benefiting from the Foundation and undertook the task of looking for a bicycle specially designed for children with special conditions.
The pure air and nature that surround the Centro de Vida los Ángeles will be the ideal setting to transform the lives of many children who lead a large part of their lives, sitting in a wheelchair or lying in their bed and that thanks to the Project “ Pipe Bike ”will be able to ride a bicycle alongside their volunteer angels.

PipeBike is a project where through a bicycle designed to ride boys and girls with some type of disability. A psychic, emotional and inclusive therapy is provided for the little ones since they can live the experience of riding a bicycle like any other child.

Perritos de Mar

“Perritos de Mar, fur that heals”, is another project that started with the sole objective of providing canine therapeutic support to the children of the foundation. Currently there are two canines in the Tocancipá Life Center who are in the hands of a professional in the process of becoming animals that develop assisted activities, providing psycho-affective support and physiotherapy activities.

More information

On the other hand, at the current headquarters of the Hogar Santa Rita de Cascia Home, therapies are periodically carried out with dogs for children with disabilities, either at the initiative of volunteers or physiotherapy students who carry out their professional practice at home. This type of activities not only achieves an affective and evolutionary connection in the behaviors of the little ones, through the trust, security and protection that they provide, but it also brightens their lives, allowing them to be in contact with the canines, which for them is nothing common and that takes them completely out of your daily routine.

Aware of the benefits of this type of therapy in the rehabilitation of children and that dogs turn out to be the best companions for them, the foundation is developing this great project that will be a perfect complement to the Centro de Vida, a place surrounded by pure aire and nature.

For this reason, the Foundation receives daily students from different schools in the capital such as: Santa María, Nueva Granada, Cristiano Gracia y Amor, Santa Francisca Romana, Gimnasio los Cerros, among others.

Through service-learning, young people who carry out their social service improve their learning results in knowledge, capacities, skills, attitudes and moral values, but they do so while acting as citizens committed to the children and the elderly of our foundation.

Painting murals, reading stories, dancing, singing to the children, folding clothes, serving breakfast to the grandparents, taking the children for a walk and sowing seeds in the garden, are among others some of the activities carried out by the students in the different branches of the Foundation.

Learning by doing a service to the community is the objective pursued by our program and for this we only require the social commitment of our students to transform the world.

Steps to perform social service

  1. The School must send a letter to the email introducing the student (s) and the person in charge of them.
  2. The volunteer section will contact the person in charge of the School informing the hours and locations available.
  3. Students will be summoned for induction and delivery of work schedules.
  4. The School must send a form to control and monitor attendance.
  5. The foundation will deliver the corresponding certifications, once the agreed hours are finished.
