Let's join forces to tackle

Female empowerment

Support us in bringing digital education to female refugees worldwide

Support us in bringing digital education to female refugees worldwide

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.

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.

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.
