We cannot provide our services without help from donors. Obtaining funds for running costs is an ongoing challenge for the school and GIDP as a whole. Many generous individuals and organizations have contributed money, goods, or services. They have found GIDP to be good value for money – we hope you will too. It is important to note that the community contributes over $30,000 per year in school fees and donations.

The Manager acknowledges all donations – reports and accounts are sent to each individual donor by email.
