Dear Kiron partners and supporters,
2018 has been an exciting and rewarding year for all of us at Kiron. Over the last twelve months, we have seen our first students graduate from university, we started and continued inspiring partnerships, and made extraordinary strides towards broadening our educational offer to provide even more learning opportunities for our global student community.
Kiron has always been committed to open access to higher education for refugees and vulnerable communities and inspired by our extraordinary students, we have taken the first step in creating new educational pathways that give learners tools to prepare for the job market and enable personal growth. We are thrilled to keep innovating, learning, and to continue transforming the Kiron Campus into a platform that fits our students’ needs even better. Hence, we are very happy to share with you our Kiron Annual Report 2018.
Despite all these exciting changes, our core values remain the same: our amazing students are at the heart of everything we do and we remain as committed to them as we were when we started. As we look ahead to 2019 and beyond, we plan to build on what we have achieved, by serving more target groups, and scaling our projects. . With every new student, our global Kiron family is growing and we are proud to welcome many more learners in the years to come.
We would like to express our gratitude to our supporters for making our work possible.
Thanks to you, Kiron will continue to be a bridge to hope and new opportunities for our students.
