Kiron in Lebanon

Supporting refugees and underserved Lebanese communities through access to high-quality education

Lebanon hosts the highest number of refugees in the world per capita, with approximately a third of current inhabitants being refugees or displaced. 

Kiron started operations in Lebanon in 2017, supporting refugees and underserved Lebanese communities in the country. Kiron proposes a blended learning approach in Lebanon, combining online courses from renowned Higher Education Institutions on our platform with offline learning in study centers, together with a strong student support.

Three main pillars of our approach

$item-1
Enhancing learners’ skills needed to access the job market.

Kiron provides the opportunity for the students to take online courses and workshops on the Kiron Campus to prepare them for the job market and other landing opportunities they wish for. The students feel more confident and prepared to access the job market.

$item-2
A strong blended learning & support system online and in person guidance for students

Kiron offers tailored online and in-person guidance to students depending on the goals that they want to achieve, whether they want to go to university or envisage other pathways. Students have access to our online forum, help center, mentoring services and others, as well as in-person office hours and welcome sessions.

Kiron proposes a blended education initiative, consisting of a digital learning certificate program and peer-to-peer support components. Students are organized in groups and offered access to study centers in different regions of Lebanon. With computers, an internet connection, students pursue their online studies with a tutor present to guide them through the course, and give complementary offline academic support.

$item-3
Advancing the culture and recognition of online learning through result-driven awareness and partnerships.

Promote and advance the culture of online learning by increasing access to it and the recognition on a broad national level through partnerships with multiple stakeholders, students, faculty members, and NGOS.
