Enable a study program for a refugee!

Kiron gives refugees hope through perspective and serves as a bridge to new opportunities for them. Our vision is a world in which everyone has the equal chance to access and succeed in higher education.

The Problem
Global conflicts have forced over 68,5 million people into exile, and roughly 28,300 people are forced to flee their homes every day. Less than one percent of the world’s displaced population has access to higher education. Barriers to education impede the aspirations of millions of motivated and talented people worldwide. 

Through the Kiron model, refugees can overcome barriers and access higher education from anywhere in the world.

The Solution
Since 2015, we have been offering free digital learning opportunities to refugees and underserved communities for academic, professional and personal growth. Education can change lives, transform communities, and build bridges. That is why we built the Kiron Campus, to ensure that our students receive access to flexible, high-quality learning opportunities. Through an innovative model, Kiron offers free, tailor-made study programs by clustering Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) from renowned educational platforms, so that we can empower our students and give them the tools, skills, and networks they need for future success.

No amount is too small to make an impact. With your support, we can expand our free digital learning programs and most importantly, for Kiron students worldwide you can count on, wherever the need is the greatest.
