Kiron’s mission is to offer equal opportunities in education worldwide
and, since 2015, they have been offering free online learning opportunities to
refugees and underserved communities. As they believe that education can change
lives, transform communities, and build bridges, they have created the online
learning platform Kiron Campus. In this way Kiron wants to ensure that their
students receive free access to high-quality education for academic,
professional and personal growth. Today Kiron collaborates with 145 partners
worldwide to provide high-quality educational opportunities to 7000+ students
from more than 45 countries.
How can it help me?
Kiron was created to
offer free online learning opportunities to refugees and underserved
communities. Participants do not need to prove any previous education, language
skills, or finances. They only need a document that proves they are a refugee,
asylum seeker, internally displaced person, Jordanian or Lebanese. With this,
they can sign up and start studying for free. If you know potential students
with the abovementioned background, please communicate this amazing program to them
so they can benefit from it.
How can I use Kiron and
what are its benefits?
If you belong to their target group you can of course use Kiron’s free high-quality
educational options, tailored to your needs. Everyone else can share the
program, support the initiative financially, or even become a partner. Whether
it’s a grant to support their most innovative work, a customized program to
empower their students, or co-creating digital educational solutions or
research projects – they are always keen on exploring new partnership
