Kiron & OFID– Empowering refugees and underserved communities through digital learning

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 collaborate on expanding access to quality education to underserved youth in Middle East and beyond help them achieve their social and professional integration by using impactful digital solutions.

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.

Digital education for the future of work

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.

Enabling access through online education

Digital Innovation for Access

Kiron-Campus

Digital Innovation for Access

We believe in the power of tech to create a better world.

That is why we created the digital Kiron Campus, a free platform for refugees and disadvantaged communities, to access boundless learning. Our digital courses allow students to learn about topics from digital literacy to programming languages, and web design. With Kiron, our students find the digital tools they need to succeed, be it to found their own start-up, to become a software engineer or to study computer science. Support us in bringing even more learning resources to communities worldwide and help us to create a more connected, more equal world through tech.

Transforming university access for refugees

Open up access to higher education for refugees and vulnerable communities

Open up access to higher education for refugees and vulnerable communities

A university education remains an impossible dream for most displaced people worldwide with more than 97% of refugees unable access to higher education.

Since 2015, Kiron has worked to change that. Not only have we enabled students to transfer to a university and continue the studies that they started on our digital campus, we have also made significant contributions to the acceptance of digital education in higher education. By creating change on an individual and systemic level, we open up access to higher education for refugees and vulnerable communities. Join us in making an impossible dream possible.

Transfer and online credits recognition in universities

Kiron adapts the online curriculum tracks offered to the Lebanese university model.

Kiron provides the opportunity for the students to study credits for free on the Kiron Campus, for 6 months to up to 24 months, and then get their online credits recognized when they apply and transfer to a local partner university. 

The students will then be able to save tuition fees by transferring the courses they have already studied online, pursue their studies offline and graduate from a bachelor’s degree from that university. 

Our partners help us turn ideas into action.Case studies
