Why we started

After forced migration, refugees usually encounter challenges continuing education. Discontinuing education can impact their ability to gain skills, get decent jobs and rebuild their lives leaving them vulnerable to poverty and dependence.

Kiron started in 2015 to ensure that forcibly displaced people can get free learning opportunities online. We have offices in Berlin and Amman, Jordan.

Inclusive education for all

We believe that everyone has an equal right to access quality education
Our Vision:
A world where everyone can fulfil their highest potential for a self-determined, dignified life, shaping a sustainable future together.
Our Mission:
To provide a virtual home for learning, personal growth and collective impact.

We are contributing to SDG 4, 5 & 8

We want to do our part to ensure quality education and decent work and economic growth for all
Individuals have accessed education through Kiron

I think that non-formal education plays an important role in order to be fit for the job market. These courses like Kiron offers are a really good opportunity, to keep up with the latest developments.
