Rooftop TV: Episode 10 – Refugee Week, United World Colleges, Ellis Jenkins

The home of good news worth shouting about, The Rooftop, has launched a new weekly broadcast series called Rooftop TV.

Featuring a roundup of the week’s top good news stories, the programme shines a spotlight on the issues that matter and the campaigns that are making a positive difference to people’s lives.

In this week’s show, Tom York interviews Dechen, a 17-year-old student who was forced to flee from Tibet to India as a child and is now studying at United World Colleges in Wales after being awarded a scholarship in 2020.

Since lockdown began, Dechen has been using her spare time to make face masks and PPE for local hospitals and raising money for refugees in Syria.

Also in the show, Ian Morton shares news about how not-for-profit organisation Amala Education is helping displaced young people get an education with the first ever high school qualification for refugees.

And we also hear how Wales International and Cardiff Blues rugby star Ellis Jenkins is helping keep up the fundraising for City Hospice.
