The Ambassador for Instant Network Schools (INS) and Liverpool star Mohamed Salah have helped deliver the voices of four refugee to the current United Nations General Assembly.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) posted a video on their official social media accounts showing Salah talking with four African refugee students, discussing the importance of the digital education they are receiving thanks to the INS.

Last February, Salah, the Premier League champion 2019/2020, became the first Ambassador for Instant Network Schools (INS), which connect refugee and host country students to a quality digital education.

The INS was set up in 2013 by Vodafone Foundation and the UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, to give young refugees, host communities and their teachers access to digital learning content and the internet, improving the quality of education in some of the most marginalised communities in Africa.
