This month, the 71st Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) took place in New York. Many pressing issues were discussed including the refugee crisis. Taha, CEO of CAP, was selected to represent the cause of Safe Schools (or Education in Emergencies), as part of her role as A World at School Global Youth Ambassador, during the UNGA week.

She had the opportunity to attend numerous high-level meetings and research events. She met several world leaders, government officials, youth advocates, NGO representatives.
