  1. I have a diploma in humanitarian disaster management, and a master degree in business english. In addition to this, I worked for more than 10 years as a logistician in charge of distribution operation in Congolese Refugees camps, for Rwandese and DRC Refugeees.
    I would like to take advantage of this experience, to deepen my knowledge in the field. It is why I apply for a phd hmanitarian scholarship .

    Thank you.
