Kiron

Adessium Foundation and Kiron – Social mobility for refugees through education and employment opportunities

Like you, we believe refugees deserve a proper chance to integrate into society. That is why we support refugees in Europe and the Middle East by providing access to higher education which enables more opportunities for success.

Together we can collaborate to increase impactful digital solutions that equip refugees with recognisable knowledge and skills to achieve their goals and thrive in society.

 

 

A cooperation with Kiron could be focused on the following areas;

COVID-19 Response

Reaching marginalised communities during the COVID-19 pandemic

Reaching marginalised communities during the COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic shook the world in an unprecedented way.

As a consequence, already fragile communities, such as refugees, are left even more vulnerable, ostracized from society, and excluded from essential opportunities in education. NGOs and other educational institutions who have been delivering education to refugees in a brick and mortar environment have been struggling to transport their offline work to the online sphere.  As a result, many refugees have even fewer opportunities to access quality learning materials. Kiron’s expertise embodies a highly-interactive, online learning environment, and virtual communication for a very complex user.  Support Kiron in sharing its expertise globally, thus enabling successful learning in these unprecedented times.

Female empowerment

Support us in bringing digital education to female refugees worldwide

Support us in bringing digital education to female refugees worldwide

Refugee women face more obstacles than almost any other group when accessing education or the job market: family responsibilities, care work, and informal and unpaid labour – all prevent young women from fulfilling their potential.

We believe in the amazing abilities and resilience of our female learners. That is why we provide the tools they need to shape their own lives and tell their own stories. Female Empowerment is at the heart of what we do, be it through specific projects, campaigns, or features on our digital Kiron Campus, our female students find a supportive and productive community with Kiron. Yet, we have a long way to go: Today only around 25% of our students are women.  If a woman thrives, communities prosper. Join us in supporting the female change makers of tomorrow.

Digital education for integration

Digital education for integration

Digital education for integration

Arriving in a new country poses particular challenges: orientation in new systems, overcoming language barriers and finding a community are just some examples where Kiron is making a real difference in the lives of refugees and displaced people.

Through Kiron, students have free access to language classes, to courses ranging from business to social work topics, and to a vibrant online community where they find support and advice. By learning new skills, connecting with a community and receiving orientation support, Kiron students can take the first steps towards settling and integrating into their new communities. Support us in expanding our offer and making it available to even more refugees worldwide/in a particular country.

Digital education for the future of work

Help us to prepare refugees for the 21st-century job market

RegionalPrograms

Help us to prepare refugees for the 21st-century job market

The future of work is digital and digital literacy and 21st-century skills are vital for labour market integration and success.

That is why Kiron created tailor-made short programs, designed to equip students with the tools they need to succeed in the job market. Our short programs teach students skills such as programming, web design or how to build their own online business and they are among our most widely used features on our digital Kiron Campus. Our students have come far with us, from founding their own startup to starting internships or getting promotions, but together we want to go further. Help us to create even more short programs so that we can prepare refugees for the 21st-century job market.
