I am at present living and working in Shandan at Shandan Bailie School. I am a Kiwi who feels humbled by such a great man and embarrassed that I knew so little of him before coming to China. It is a privilege to be here in Shandan supporting the local people at both the school and in the local co-operatives. I have enjoying following in the footsteps of the great man and have been really lucky to meet some people who knew both Rewi Alley and George Hogg.

In his work for Gung Ho and world peace Rewi saved and improved more lives than any other New Zealander ever has. The people of New Zealand and China owe him a huge debt.

An adventurer of the old breed. A great man.

Rewi Alley was a true ex-pat Kiwi, strength of character and gift to look beyond the prejudices. And perhaps very disillusioned with the NZ Govts history of treating the top GDP earners (Farmers) like excretions. Chinese are hard working and careful with everything, perhaps other countries could learn from these noble traits.
Personally I like my freedoms too much to ever want to live in China but hey who knows one day, we will all end up as servants to the Chinese anyway, so best to accept the future.
East becomes West and West becomes East.

I have never seen this but learned of Rewi Alley in my years in University. He was a founder of modern China. I am glad I was able to see this.

It's a shame that I was student in NZ but did not know about Rewi Alley until yesterday watching China's CCTV program.
New Zealanders should be proud of him. He was a great man.
Your videos are great with clear and rare footage even CCTV do not have.
Thank you gentlemen.
