How to contribute to Kiron’s mission?

At the beginning of the student journey there are scholarships that Kiron needs to provide high class education to every single student and embed it into a variety of support programs.

Give a scholarship in order to ensure motivated refugee students are able to begin their student journey once more. A scholarship of 3,500.00 EUR covers the costs for the resources and infrastructure of the two-year online program.

Partners can designate their support to Kiron and our students in a variety of ways.

Donations

Why donate?

Actions speak louder than words and empty promises!

“Supporting those who have come to us out of sheer desparation is known to be particularly close to the hearts of both our works council and our personnel. The dedication of the many thousands of our employees involved with refugees on a voluntary basis is a perfect proof for this. Through our cooperation with Kiron, we can now additionally provide refugees with training opportunities and perspectives in the academic sphere – which perfectly complements the previous commitments of our group and its employees.”
