GESCI’s core operations and programmes are funded by the governments of Ireland (Irish Aid), Sweden (Sida), Switzerland (SDC) and Finland (Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland).

GESCI also undertakes paid consultancies on behalf of donors and other partners. In addition, GESCI often raises funds jointly with partner Ministries and civil society organisations for jointly developed programmes.

GESCI considers its donor community a strategic partner, not only as a source of funding. We aim to ensure that our work also benefits donors by continuously informing them of emerging and good practices, sharing tools and building and furthering the donors’ own priorities and programmes. Through GESCI’s knowledge building activities, the donor community can anchor its ICT and education-for-development policy dialogues to the good practices evolving from GESCI’s work.
