About ObR


“Obrazovanie bez ranitsi” (Education without Backpacks) aims to assist the modernization of Bulgarian education and the generation of alternative educational and cultural resources in Bulgarian. Currently, the organization’s main project is the translation, popularization, and real-life application of the largest online portal for education in the world: Khan Academy. Our future plans include the localization of the Duo Lingo and Coursera platforms.

Khan Academy is a free education platform which offers about 10,000 video lessons and 100,000 interactive exercises in mathematics, computer sciences, and other subjects.

To date, 66 million people around the world have used Khan Academy. Its lessons cover topics from primary school, secondary school, and graduate school preparatory modules, as well as a myriad of general knowledge topics, including lectures from our partners at NASA, MIT, MoMA, and many others.
Education without Backpacks aims to develop a community, which continuously expands its knowledge and horizons, giving it the most useful and efficient tools to achieve that. A community, which values new knowledge and knows how to obtain it, in order to apply it in everyday life with no delay or dependecy on others.

We are excited to be a part of this project and invite you to join us! At this site, Education without Backpacks’ Facebook profile, or at Khan Academy in Bulgaria you can learn about our activities and events. We are expecting you!
