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

We know you are committed to promoting social mobility for young people through education and employment opportunities. So are we. We support young refugees in Europe and the MENA region by giving them access to higher education which provides them with job opportunities.


Together we can collaborate on impactful digital solutions to create global access to quality education and help refugees and underserved youth in defining and achieving their goals.



Join us and collaborate in the following areas

Digital Education for Your Workforce

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


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

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

This is why Kiron has created tailor-made short programs, designed to equip students with the tools they need to succeed in the job market. Our students have come far with us, from founding their own startup,  doing internships or getting promotions.  Together we want to go even further – Share your expertise with us on the most highly-demanded skills within your industry. Help us to co-create even more short programs to target specific skills that refugees would require to prosper further within your industry. This would ensure an additional recruitment funnel with qualified candidates for you.

Virtual Internships

Creating employment opportunities through virtual internships

Refugee students face additional layers of difficulty in accessing the labor market. The interrupted studies or job market experience puts them in an unfavorable position compared to their non-refugee counterparts. In addition, in Jordan and Lebanon, the social and economic prospects for refugees are even more challenging due to the complex political situation and tensions within the countries. Refugees lack basic labor market opportunities, such as internships and mentoring. Help us in designing and delivering online internships and support opportunities for refugees worldwide and contributing to your pipeline of qualified, diverse candidates.

Blended Learning in MENA and Africa

Blended Learning in MENA and Africa

Kiron has been offering blended learning opportunities – combining offline and online means – for refugees in camps and urban areas.

Besides allowing the students to dive deeper into the learning material and topics, the blended format engages students in a more active way since they are supported by a tutor throughout the course as well as by their fellow students, thus creating a vibrant learning environment. Such an ecosystem supports students in a multifaceted way, hence resulting in high success rates. Help us to support refugee students in the Middle East and Africa by expanding our offering to even more students unable to access education and learning opportunities on the ground.

Scholarships for students in Jordan and Lebanon

Giving that vital boost

Giving that vital boost

Kiron has been preparing its students in Jordan and Lebanon for entrance into universities. 

This has been done by providing them with relevant introductory courses in five different study tracks, as well as much needed English language skills. However, the higher education systems in Jordan and Lebanon are expensive and complex. Even the most successful students in the region can only compete for a small pool of available scholarships. Support our students with that vital, final boost in getting admitted to university programs through scholarships and access to educational materials for preparation and support on Kiron Campus.
