We stopped by Colombia in 2021 and we finally arrived in Miami in 2022, with the purpose of finding, connecting and amplifying changemakers from all over the world. Now, 10 years later, our heart still beats in Guayaquil, but our purpose needs to embrace the entire planet.

THE CITY LOCATED ON THE BEAUTIFUL COAST
From the Pacific Ocean, Santiago de Guayaquil, Ecuador's seaport city and gateway to beaches on the Pacific and the Galapagos Islands, lies along the Pacific Ocean. It is an attractive, vibrant city characterized by its dynamism, organization, outstanding urban achievements, and its people's warmth. The Simón Bolívar Pier with its Rotonda Hemicycle extends next to the Guayas River. A few meters away from the north stands Barrio Las Peñas, characterized by its colorful houses, where a set of 456 stairs lined up with cafes, craft shops, and art galleries guides towards the top of Santa Ana Hill. At the top, overlooking the city, boasts Santa Ana Chapel and a lighthouse.
