About the Project
Less than one percent of refugees globally have access to higher education.
Kiron believes that everybody has the right to fulfill their potential and improve their life prospects through education. The association believes that the obstacles refugees face in accessing education can be overcome.
Kiron’s vision is to provide millions of refugees worldwide with the opportunity to graduate with an accredited university degree, free of charge. No more time, potential, or lives wasted.
Kiron uses Blended Learning 2.0 – an innovative combination of online and offline learning to provide accessible, sustainable, and cost-effective education. To date, we have over 2000 students on the platform, twenty two partner universities, and four study tracks.
Kiron France is the French branch of Kiron Open Higher Education, an NGO created in Germany at the height of the refugee crisis in 2015.
