Results from the first 14 days of our Global Giving campaign

A big thank you to all 199 of you who collected $ 10,136 for 2 weeks for the Bulgarian translation of the Khan Academy!

As our chairman, Ivan Gospodinov, said these days: “I hope this little story will motivate you to dare and invest wholeheartedly in your initiatives …behind successful young Bulgarians there are hundreds of supporters who believe in their ideas and their successes. Thanks to everyone who supported us not only financially but also morally! We wouldn’t be able to proceed with this project for so long, if you wouldn’t have constantly repeated that it makes sense. Seeing that people are already more and more willing to invest in a non-profit project, brings us incredible hope for our and other similar projects in Bulgaria!”

The campaign continues with an open end on https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/educate-bulgarian-children-with-khan-academy/

Today the fundraising campaign for translating Khan Academy in Bulgarian begins!

Give Now

For over 10 years Khan Academy has offered free world-class education for anyone, anywhere. Our cause is to translate, adopt and raise awareness for the world-famous platform in Bulgarian, so more people take advantage of this free resource. Many teachers, like Ms. Milenkova, and pupils, like Vanesa and Petur from 4th grade in Sofia’s 137th Elementary School, want to use the platform in Bulgarian, their native language.

We need funds to make this possible. We have been translating Khan Academy since 2011, only via volunteer work and few individual donations. Many students throughout the country already use the 1 800 (out of 8 000) subtitled video tutorials. Several thousand interactive exercises, out of 100 000, are also translated, and we work further with content experts and academics to guarantee the translation quality.

It’s clear we have much work to complete the translation of the platform’s full content. So we are starting a fundraising campaign to help us fulfill our goals.

With your help, this campaign is only a step in a longer journey, since the translation and quality control of Khan Academy’s full content require many more funds, together with volunteer efforts.

Your donation will help Khan Academy content reach thousands of Bulgarian children. Remember that 40 % of them do not have access to quality education.

With Khan Academy we give them a world-class free resource that saves money for private lessons and allows them to have fun while studying. It also lets teachers and parents easily track their progress and help them with their learning.

Let’s make Bulgaria part of Khan Academy’s global community of 26 million learners!

We will use the funds from this campaign to achieve the official “live” version of Khan Academy in Bulgarian. What remains to be done:

  • translate the subtitles for and dub several hundred lessons
  • translate and adapt several thousand exercises

With your help we can do it faster!
