Dream Blue Foundation & Kiron– Utilizing the Immense Potential Digital Education to Empower Underserved Youth in the Middle East

We know you are committed to encouraging learning for all and making digital technology a driver of equal opportunities for the future work. So are we.

 

Together we can help refugee and underserved youth strive by creating innovative and impactful digital solutions that provide quality education and foster employment-readiness with skill-trainings.

Join us and collaborate in the following areas

Transforming education access in the Middle East

Help us bringing blended education to communities in the Middle East

Help us bringing blended education to communities in the Middle East

Syria’s neighboring countries are disproportionately affected by the Syrian conflict. That is why Kiron has offices in Amman, Jordan, and Beirut, Lebanon, to provide students with crucial support and our unique blended learning program.

Students can access our courses online but they also have the option of becoming part of our vibrant offline communities by completing certificate programs and participating in our events. Almost 2000 students learn with us in Jordan and Lebanon alone. Through Kiron they were able to found their own business, to access university or to improve their language and community leadership skills. Support our work in Jordan and Lebanon and help us to bring blended education to communities in the Middle East.

Female empowerment

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. Support us in bringing digital education to even more female refugees worldwide and empower them to become changemakers in their communities.

A strong blended learning and support system

Online and in-person guidance for students

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.

As online learning is very new in the region and in Lebanon, and in order to meet our students’ local needs, 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. Students can thus have access to an appropriate study environment, with computers, an internet connection and pursue their online studies with a tutor present to guide them through the course, and give complementary offline academic support.

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.
