Join us and collaborate in the following areas

Digital Communities

Putting people first through community building

Putting people first through community building

We believe learning happens in a community but refugees and displaced people often find themselves isolated and with little contact to wider communities. That is why the digital Kiron Campus includes extensive community features such as message boards, chats, and digital classrooms which connect students all over the world to form a vibrant community online. We are really proud of the support that our students give to each other and we want to enable them to do more. Help us to expand our community features on the campus to create an even larger fellowship of students worldwide.

Digital education for the future of work

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 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 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.

Digital solutions for the Climate Crisis

Empower underserved communities to become change-makers

Empower underserved communities to become change-makers

The time for Climate Action is now. Until 2050, more than 200 million people will be forced to flee due to the impact of a changing climate so refugees are not only disproportionately affected by climate change, they will also play a crucial role in the fight against it.

Kiron is at the forefront of bringing digital education on climate change, its consequences and possibilities of mitigation to communities all around the globe. Support us in equipping our digital Kiron Campus with even more resources and lessons on climate change and climate action and help us to empower refugees and displaced people through education to become change-makers in their communities.
