Learn all about our volunteer programs
The Fundación Proyecto Unión was created in 1999 with the aim of generating a positive change in the conditions of the vulnerable and special populations of our country, rescuing the hope of hundreds of children with difficult-to-manage diseases as well as the elderly inhabitants of Street. For this reason, the work carried out by each of our volunteer angels is considered of vital importance, attending to the needs and contributing in different ways to the improvement of the quality of life of those who need it most.
The vision of the “Volunteers in Action We are Changing the World” program is to become a strengthened program at the national and international level that works comprehensively for inclusion, equity and attention to the needs of the most vulnerable population, generating personal and professional growth in the community of volunteers achieving great transformations in society.
Volunteering Fields of Action
Volunteering requires a commitment. This commitment of the volunteer is outlined in a document called the volunteering route where the time, tasks, and training required for each of the levels appear.
This is how the volunteer of the Fundación Proyecto Unión will be able to act in the following fields of action:
a) Humanitarian Assistance: Specific actions to resolve situations that arise in a community in order to generate well-being.
b) Social Activities: Through work in recreation, education, personal care and the promotion of good habits, the volunteers support the development of activities in reference to the care of the beneficiaries and their well-being.
c) Awareness and promotion: They accompany the awareness of people to promote, develop actions that contribute to solidarity in order to contribute to meeting needs.
d) Training: Volunteers according to their profile, experience and desire to help, will be able to put their knowledge into practice at the service of others.

We support new ways of managing the environment that protect the ecosystems and the different forms of life on the planet in sustainable ways in time, through the conservation project that is being carried out in the Sabana eco-park.
The international volunteering program of the Fundación Proyecto Unión was created with the purpose of receiving volunteers from around the world interested in serving two of the most vulnerable populations in our country: children with complex diseases and the grandparents living on the streets.
Currently the program offers the possibility to foreign volunteers to volunteer at Casa de los Ángeles, municipality of Tocancipá, which functions as a foster home to care for sick children from faraway places requiring medical treatment in the capital, always in the company of a family member, for as long as necessary. International volunteers who sign up for the program have the possibility of stay in comfortable rooms in the house and eat during your stay, in an environment specially designed for the recovery of children. The house has a spacious reading, music and art rooms, surrounded by nature and with the possibility of interacting with the biodiversity of the place, learning and carrying out conservation of the environment in the Sabana Ecopark.
Volunteers from 12 countries in America and Europe have come to the Fundación Proyecto Union to fulfill their desire to transform the world through international agencies or known to the Foundation. Only from the year 2018 was the opportunity to offer accommodation and food at the Casa de los Ángeles to receive them during the duration of your volunteering.
These actions demonstrate the deep affection we have for life in each of its forms, our commitment and responsibility with the creation of a more just, supportive and happy world.
