The investment of your financial resources toward one of our special projects will strengthen GDQ’s ability to serve the missionary community, the international business community, and the Albanian Christian community.
We work to support the needs of all children at GDQ. There are times when students would benefit from diagnostic testing to identify specific learning difficulties, for example dyslexia. As Albania lacks the needed diagnostic resources, we need to bring in specialists outside of Albania. We strive to ensure that families needing these assessments for their children are not prevented from doing so due to the financial costs involved. Currently a full assessment test plus reporting costs between $150 – $250 per child.
Albanian Christian parents have been praying and investigating the possibility of a Christian school for Albanian children. GDQ International Christian School will play a critical role in developing the school’s ethos by providing an internship program for the Albanian teachers who will teach at the school. The cost to bring each Albanian Christian teacher into this internship program for one academic year is 3800 euros.
The GDQ community is comprised of missionary and non-missionary families. All families pay tuition fees. Student tuition assistance is open to all families. A private committee allocates monies based on financial need to those families applying for financial assistance.
Gifts designated to this fund will be designated toward future school enhancements such as the purchase of land, structural enhancements to our current sites, or purchases to further develop our computer lab or science department. Presently, 750 euros / 1000 USD will buy 1 square meter of land.
GDQ’s administration with the assistance of the GDQ Board of Directors and GDQ staff will determine where to designate these funds.
