[2013-03-19] Shin Shin Received Official Approval to Establish a Representative Office in ChinaOn March 10th, Steve Ting, the President of Shin Shin Educational Foundation (SSEF/Shin Shin) was interviewed by Qingwei Wang, a journalist at World Journal to share the exciting news that China's Ministry of Civil Affairs has formally approved Shin Shin's application to establish a representative office in Beijing. The representative office will be directly supervised by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council of China. The office will enable the foundation to continue its work in promoting education in remote, poverty-stricken areas in China. Many thanks to all the SSEF founding members and volunteers for their time and effort in making this possible.
It is with great honor that SSEF obtains the approval, as it is an extremely difficult task to set up a representative office in China. Only a handful of such applications have ever been approved. This approval is an official recognition of Shin Shin's mission and operations in China, as well as countless volunteers' contributions. It is the result of Shin Shin's long-term efforts in the past fifteen years helping the remote areas of China.
