Support my PhD studies on China

I was so excited when I was accepted into the PhD program at the International Christian University in Tokyo. I worked in challenging international environments including the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Myanmar and Israel & Palestinian territories for 7 years in the NGOs sectors, to support refugees and local communities. However,  covering the cost of postgraduate study is currently my biggest challenge, especially during this time of uncertainty. I began in September and I need this money to cover the tuition fees of the first year which is around Euro 4,300.  As far as the topic of my research, I'm looking into the Belt and Road Initiative,  an ambitious programme launch by  China to connect Asia with Africa and Europe via land and maritime networks. Understanding the impact that this development program will have on communities and environment is one of the most important thing governments will have to handle in the near future. God bless you, and thank you so much for your help!
