The characteristics of modern society is internationalization, globalization and hence I believe what is being questioned now is how to deal with some sort of paradigm shift.
Under these circumstances, the General Incorporate Foundation CHIKYUJIN is established in this occasion.
What is “CHIKYUJIN?” From the sound of the word, what is it that you are able to feel depends on each respective person.
I reckon the CHIKYUJIN that we conceive is about the promotion of a symbiotic movement.
In many countries of the Asian countries, great rivers are flowing. And, the rivers always flow without stagnation and change freely. I consider more or less these surreal river flows symbolize the CHIKYUJIN
For the river, there is no recognition of border. Also, river water supports the livelihoods of many people, but it does not aware of it. However, the river gives its benefits everywhere.
We at the foundation would like to be useful for the activities that are symbolized by the life of this river. Specifically, to foreign students who are studying in Japan and then contribute to the development of their homeland with knowledge and technology that were acquired; or getting the opportunity for having a higher education in Japan to become a researcher; or, interaction of Japanese culture that could not be possible in homeland that consequently contribute to mutual understanding and others between two countries. This foundation supports Asian students who desire to study in Japan because of a variety of motivations from all aspects. In this regard, I want this foundation to assist them to fulfill their “dreams.”
From the time to consider studying abroad to the time of studying in Japan, we provide assistance in application procedures, livelihood support, counseling and assist to troubleshoot other problems when living in Japan, and our assistance also extends to schooling in Japan until the return to home countries through the networks of “CHIKYUJIN” with the continuous practice of “symbiotic” movement. I reckon these are the missions of our foundation.
~ For smiling earth people ~
With Asian students, in the same field, to the students as the CHIKYUJIN, as the foundation to assist in realizing “you would surely fulfill the dream,” all our staff will join forces for that commitment.
I fervently ask for your support and cooperation.
