“For many refugees around the world, including me, Kiron offers a space to educate ourselves for the future.” – Belal, Kiron Student

 

“Kiron Phenomenon”

 

Nelson Mandela taught the world that “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Kiron is using this powerful weapon to help refugees create their own education and their own changes. Kiron considers education one of the most important goals for sustainable development. The “Kiron Phenomenon,” as I like to call it, brings back hope to many displaced people and gives them new opportunities to continue the learning process, no matter where they are or where they come from.  As simple as it sounds, “Start your studies, take your motivation into your own hands” – then you can find a way to integrate and become active citizens. I am studying Political Science and have already started on my lifelong learning journey.

Recently, many people have had to flee their countries, which are ravaged by war and poverty. They have had to leave their homelands to find a better life and future. They have had to overcome many bureaucratic barriers. For many refugees around the world, including me, Kiron offers a space to educate ourselves for the future. I am so glad that my name is included on this new page Kiron is writing in the history of education.
