- A leading and educational group of international repute, Khan Academy, gets a major boost in 2021
- This is because the world's richest man recently gifted the educational group a whooping sum of N20bn
- Khan Academy founder, Salman Khan, showers praise on Musk for the gesture saying it'd allow for accelerated contents
Tesla CEO and world's richest man Elon Musk has surprised a top education outfit with a staggering amount of money.
Musk who returned to the number 1 spot on the world rich list on Tuesday, January 12, gifted the Khan Academy with the sum of N20bn as a way of supporting their activities.
Khan Academy founder and boss Salman Khan confirmed this development in a YouTube post on Monday.
The scholarly man was full of praise for the electric-car producer and even asked him if "...he is really feeling good about this."
"This is going to allow us to accelerate all sorts of content. Our aspirations are all subjects -- from kids to early stages of college. This will accelerate our science content, allow us to do more early learning, allow us to make the software and the practice that much more engaging."
The donation was made to the online learning education group through the Musk Foundation; a non-profit organisation known for lending support to research work in paediatrics, human space exploration, renewable energy and engineering.
With over 120 million registered users and 30 million students from around the world, Khan academy is the first-stop for anyone looking to acquire knowledge from anywhere in the world without the confines of a classroom or school building.
