Newid Byd

Series 1

A series where eight young people 14-16 years old travel abroad to do volunteering work on projects that help local people and the environment. Following a very rigorous process, Lloyd Antrobus from Buckley, Mali Rees from Cardiff, Teleri Davies from Bala and Ioan Williams from the Vale of Glamorgan were chosen to be part of the NEWID BYD team that went to Malawi in Africa. They helped build a new secondary school for girls and also save wild animals at a wildlife centre in the Capital, Lilongwe. Danial Evans from Llangefni, Yali Banton-Heath from Corris, Aron Dafydd from Lampeter and Hannah Stevenson from Cardigan were the ones chosen to go to Cambodia in Asia. During their time, they helped at an Orphanage and with an eco-tourism project deep in the rainforest of the Cardamom Mountains. The series concentrates on their experiences and is full of adventure and varying emotions that could change the world for these young people.

Series 2

Following the success of series 1, we follow a new group of young volunteers in Uganda. The 4 individuals, between the age of 16-18 fulfil meaningful volunteering work, under an experienced leader’s supervision.
