20 June 2019 update:

Dear donors and patrons of the "Khan Academy O'zbek" campaign.  It is with great pleasure, we inform you that all documents are now submitted to the EBRD Community Initiative for review, and we hope to receive review results before end of June 2019.

"Khan Academy O'zbek" campaign story:

We are team of professionals from Uzbekistan,  residing in London and working for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).   In October last year we received conditional approval for EUR 50,000 EBRD grant funding to support the Community Initiative Project in Uzbekistan.

To implement this project we joined our efforts with the leading tech entrepreneurs in Uzbekistan and selected Khan Academy Uzbekistan to be the first beneficiary for this grant funding via the newly created designated NGO "Bilim Onlayn".   All proceeds from the EBRD's Community Initiative Grant and "gofundme" page in London  will be transferred in USD to the bank account of the registered NGO "Bilim Onlayn".   "Gofundme" page in London now also reflect (as "offline" donations) all the funds that were collected in Uzbekistan via the NGO's Bank account, payment systems such as "Click" and "Payme".  

This project  will introduce online state of the art school curriculum for STEM subjects in Uzbek language and make education accessible for all Uzbek speaking children.   This EdTech project will increase literacy rate and contribute to the advancement sciences, irrespective of the student's age, gender and geographic location.

Khan Academy O'zbek will create video and lesson content for all STEM subjects.  The project management, control and monitoring will be implemented by Uzbekistan's first private NGO "Bilim Onlayn". The project costs is approx. USD 450k, but we hope to raise  EUR 100,000 in first round of funding.   You have unique chance to be part of this story!   By donating to the campaign, you will be investing in education and build inclusive culture for all Uzbek speaking students.

All funds received, including the EBRD's grant funding, will cover the following expenses for the creation of Khan Academy STEM subjects in Uzbek  language :

Personnel (video and photo https://xanakademiyasi.uz/  editors, translators, text editors, admin and others).  Office maintenance, furnishing and technology.  Marketing campaign.

We also understand that not everyone has the chance and extra finances to donate, so if you want to help there are many other ways!  Implementing Khan Academy  O'zbek requires translating 42,000 hours of video content!  So if you want to get involved and confident in your Uzbek language skills, we need you!  Become a translator and see your name on the "wall" as one of the contributors to the project.
