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.

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 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.
