From the Ted Talk by Alexander Betts: Our refugee system is failing. Here's how we can fix it

Unscramble the Blue Letters

For example, in a settlement called nakliave, we found examples of Congolese rgeeeufs running digital music exchange businesses. We found a Rwandan who runs a business that's available to allow the yutoh to play computer games on recycled gemas consoles and reycecld tveenosilis. Against the odds of extreme constraint, refugees are innovating, and the gentleman you see before you is a Congolese guy called Demou-Kay. Demou-Kay arrived in the settlement with very little, but he wanted to be a filmmaker. So with friends and colleagues, he started a community radio station, he rented a video cmeara, and he's now mnikag films. He made two documentary films with and for our team, and he's making a successful business out of very little. It's those kinds of examples that should guide our response to refugees. Rather than seeing refugees as ilteivnbay dependent upon hiaaumnatrin assistance, we need to provide them with opportunities for human flourishing.

Original Text

For example, in a settlement called Nakivale, we found examples of Congolese refugees running digital music exchange businesses. We found a Rwandan who runs a business that's available to allow the youth to play computer games on recycled games consoles and recycled televisions. Against the odds of extreme constraint, refugees are innovating, and the gentleman you see before you is a Congolese guy called Demou-Kay. Demou-Kay arrived in the settlement with very little, but he wanted to be a filmmaker. So with friends and colleagues, he started a community radio station, he rented a video camera, and he's now making films. He made two documentary films with and for our team, and he's making a successful business out of very little. It's those kinds of examples that should guide our response to refugees. Rather than seeing refugees as inevitably dependent upon humanitarian assistance, we need to provide them with opportunities for human flourishing.
