BI Phakathi is a philanthropist who is doing his absolute best to make a difference in the lives of as many people as he can. In his most recent video that was shared online, BI meets up with a woman selling pencils in the street.
Under the guise of wanting to buy a few pencils from her, BI sparks a conversation with her around how much money she makes from selling the pencils. He also asks about her living conditions - to which she reveals that she is homeless.
Not long thereafter, she shows BI the humble place behind a supermarket that she and her partner call home. Presumably moved by the pair's living conditions, BI asks the woman whether she would like him to help change her life.

Of course, the woman agrees, also saying that she would like to buy more goods to sell and in a way expand her small business. BI then proceeds to give the couple over R3000 which he instructs them to use wisely.
Visibly overcome and naturally surprised, the couple promises BI that they will do something to make a difference in their lives with the money. They also ask him to look for them so that he can see that they kept their promise to him.
