    Through the support of the Western Union Foundation, Kiron tailored its information sessions, webinars and social media outreach towards female students’ needs. Kiron’s experience shows that role models play a substantial role in the education and training aspirations of its learners. Therefore, Kiron expanded its network with external organizations to provide additional support for students and to improve the product. We hosted two offline events to engage personally with our students and to provide networking opportunities for them. This network will continue to operate and grow in the months to come. Kiron tripled the number of young female students recruited within one year through the help of the Western Union Foundation.

    Impact

    Kiron will continue to evaluate the success of this project and new tools to build on those learnings. We want to learn more about the support our female students need and how we can provide it. We believe that more female students could and should benefit from our services and we are looking for better ways to guide them towards them. We will continue to follow our aspiration to empower young female students to make assertive, independent and self-confident decisions. And we believe that Kiron will be a stepping stone for our female students’ academic and professional careers. In the future, we want to reach even more female students and to support them.
