Partner with us in Lebanon
Partner with us in Lebanon!
In 2018, we established and developed our local branch in Beirut. This past year, we built a strong partner network, welcomed hundreds of students to our initiative and started to expand the team. We offer our digital product to refugee students as well as underserved Lebanese citizens.
Our students can take one of two pathways with Kiron in Lebanon – the first, study to transfer to a Lebanese university, or secondly, to study towards personal goals.
Strategic partnerships to meet students’ needs
To enable our students to study with Kiron and then transfer to a university, the PADILEIA project from the British Department of International Development, DFID, allowed us to localize our product and platform specifically to the needs of our students to better serve and guide them through transferring to university. Other partners have joined us on this journey, and we are glad to count the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM) and Beirut Arab University (BAU) among them as our university partners, opening up transfer possibilities of our students to their universities.
Blended learning focus
As online learning is very new in the region and in Lebanon, we also work on advancing the culture of online learning to different stakeholders: students, faculty members, other NGOs, ministerial bodies and other partners. In order to meet our students’ needs better according to the local context and help them to better understand online learning, we use a blended learning approach in a certificate program format.
