On Sunday, Joe Deegan, volunteer teacher for China, took off on his journey to Chongqing via Hong Kong.
Joe’s departure was delayed due to stricter documentation demands by the Chinese Government but with the help of Aitece, Hong Kong, and Aitece people here, the delay was only for a few days.
Joe joins eight other Irish Aitece teachers in China (including May Crawley who arrived there last week) who have found that going with a recognised group like Aitece helped them get through red tape and provides them with contacts and security in China.
Remember, it is never too late to think of going yourself. See www.aitece.ie.
