Rene Moawad Foundation and Kiron – Together elevating Digital Learning for underserved communities in the Middle East

We know you are committed to empowering individuals intellectually and financially by providing them with education. So are we. We support young refugees and underserved youth 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

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.  

COVID-19 Response

Reaching marginalised communities during the COVID-19 pandemic

Reaching marginalised communities during the COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic shook the world in an unprecedented way.

As a consequence, already fragile communities, such as refugees, are left even more vulnerable, ostracized from society, and excluded from essential opportunities in education. NGOs and other educational institutions who have been delivering education to refugees in a brick and mortar environment have been struggling to transport their offline work to the online sphere.  As a result, many refugees have even fewer opportunities to access quality learning materials. Kiron’s expertise embodies a highly-interactive, online learning environment, and virtual communication for a very complex user.  Support Kiron in sharing its expertise globally, thus enabling successful learning in these unprecedented times.

Blended Learning in MENA and Africa

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.

Virtual Internships

Generating exit opportunities for refugees

Generating exit opportunities for refugees

Refugee students face an additional layer 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. Help us in designing and delivering online internship opportunities for refugees worldwide and contributing to your funnel of qualified candidates.
