Crea tu Espacio. What is that?

Crea tu Espacio translates as Create Your Space. It is a legal non-profit foundation that has been serving migrants and immigrants for 9 years. Founding members Andres Astudillo, Anibal Bacuilima and Anita Saquipay (now in their twenties) saw the need to help migrants assimilate into the community.

Crea tu Espacio (CTE) has a variety of projects that assist infants, children, young adults and families such as daycare centers for working parents, activities that teach rights and responsibilities of Ecuadorian citizens, and a communications training course that builds confidence and competence.

Two weekly radio programs (one for children and one for families) are written, acted and produced by youth with Anita’s guidance. At least eight radio stations across Ecuador carry the broadcasts. In September 2018 CTE was recognized for doing the first international radio production from Ecuador.
