Kiron

What we do- We provide a virtual home for learning, personal growth and collective impact.

Since 2015, Kiron has been offering free online learning opportunities to refugees and underserved communities. We believe that education can change lives, transform communities, and build bridges. That’s why we created the online learning platform Kiron Campus, so we can ensure that our students receive free access to high-quality education for academic, professional and personal growth.

Kiron offers custom-made online study programs using massive open online courses (MOOCs) from renowned educational providers and Open Educational Resources (OER’s). Moreover, we provide skill programs to prepare learners for the job market. We want to empower students with the knowledge, skills, and network they need for future success.   Kiron has offices in Germany, Lebanon, and Jordan. In addition to our digital offerings, we are supporting students in Lebanon and Jordan through blended learning opportunities - the combination of offline- and online education.   Kiron takes a holistic approach to safeguarding: we work to ensure the physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing of our wider community, both in the face-to-face and online environments.
