    Story

    Pedaleando por ellos! Cycling for them!

    Hola a todos! Hi everyone! (ENGLISH BELOW)

    Soy Pablo y tengo 23 años. Me decidí a emprender un viaje desde el Mediterráneo hasta el Atlántico, cruzando por sobre los Pirineos, en bicicleta! Es una distancia de casi 1000km con una altura de aproximadamente 3000 metros sobre el nivel del mar.

    Les quiero contar que el objetivo principal de esta travesía no será la pedaleada, sino juntar fondos para una causa con la cual todos aquellos que me conocen a mí y a mi familia saben cuan comprometidos estamos.

    El “Taller Protegido Los Horneritos” es una institución surgió en 1993 como iniciativa de un pequeño grupo de padres y madres de personas con necesidades educativas especiales con el fin de brindarles a sus hijos una opción social y laboral después de terminar la escuela especial. Empezaron en una pequeña habitación, y hoy tienen un buen lugar donde chicos desde 18 años con diversos tipos de capacidades diferentes realizan sus trabajos.

    Ellos fabrican bolsas de residuos, escobas y escobillones, y todo tipo de artesanías., y con los resultados de esas ventas se llevan un sueldo todos los meses a sus casas. En el taller reciben el desayuno y almuerzo, así como también clases de pintura, teatro, etc.

    El funcionamiento del taller tiene una gran importancia en las vidas de estos chicos, ya es parte de su rutina familiar, en la cual están cómodos y felices formando de un grupo y con la capacidad de tener sueldo propio.

    Es por eso que me propongo realizar este viaje para llegar al objetivo de recaudar £200, pero tengo confianza de que vamos a poder juntar un poco más, para sumar un poquito con el trabajo que se realiza en el taller que es hecho a todo pulmón.

    Buscamos algo en español pero no encontramos, por eso esta plataforma “JustGiving” nos pareció la más fiable para llevar a cabo este propósito, se puede donar por tarjeta de crédito, débito y PayPal, y si bien dice que se puede pagar sólo en Libras, la Libra esterlina está aproximadamente 23 Pesos Argentinos, por lo cual una donación de £5 sería un poquito más de cien pesos.

    Agradezco un montón a los que puedan colaborar, y a los que no puedan en esta ocasión, sepan que las puertas del taller están siempre abiertas para ver el hermoso y noble trabajo que chicos y padres comprometidos hacen ahí.

    Estoy arrancando a pedalear hoy, miércoles 20/07/2017, y voy a estar subiendo noticias de cómo va el viaje tan pronto como tenga conexión a las redes!

    Si tienen alguna duda de cómo funciona la página, pónganse en contacto por Facebook con mi hermana Marilina Bachmann que fue la de la idea de hacer este proyecto y entiende cómo funciona todo.

    Gracias de corazón!!

    Pablo

    ------------------------ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In Buenos Aires, Argentina, a long time ago, a little boy is born in a traumatic delivery, resulting in severe life-long learning difficulties.

    Undiagnosed and unsupported till the age of five years old, his mother becomes his protector, champion and support worker all in one. This is at a time when expectations for children like him were low, especially for those coming from unprivileged families. Added to this, the area in which they lived was largely untouched by governmental funding and support, so this kind of families were left to fend for themselves, many choosing to close their doors and hide their “different” children at home.

    Even when he gains a place in a specialist school, his mother still finds herself consumed with worry about what the future will hold for her kid after schooling.

    Undeterred, this mother sets about creating her own solution, with a group of like-minded parents in a similar situation, and in 1993 after a lot of effort, the doors of “Los Horneritos” Day Centre open for the first time.

    Here, adults with wide-ranging physical and mental disabilities meet daily to eat, enjoy activities such as theatre and art sessions, and most importantly, earn a living. As well as offering breakfast, lunch, a reassuring daily routine and social interaction with good friends, “Los Horneritos” Day Centre supports its service-users to produce a range of craft and handiwork which provide each craft men/women with an income, when sold.

    The support the Day Care offers is invaluable to its users and their families. It offers independence, self-respect and companionship to those often left unsupported by society and the state. Everything they do there is the biggest show of love and effort.

    For all those that know me and my family, you will know that this resilient woman cofounder of the centre is my aunty, and that this project is her raison d’etre.

    So this is where you come in! This Wednesday 20th September 2017 I embark upon a journey from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic, crossing the Pyrenees… BY BIKE! I will cycle around 600miles at heights of up to 3K metres above the sea level. So… If I survive the challenge, I might as well raise some money for them while I am at it! :D

    Thank you so much to everybody who contributes, we are massively thankful, and remember the doors of “Los Horneritos” Day Centre are always open for you to come and see their amazing work!

    I’ll update you in my progress as soon as signal allows!!
