Bai Fangli

Bai Fangli was a Chinese pedicab driver who donated an estimated 350,000 yuan to enable more than 300 poor students to continue with their studies

He made a living by pedalling a pedicab and for almost twenty years, to save up for his donations, Bai Fangli peddled his pedicab everyday.

In 2005, he died at the age of 93. In 1987 he retired from his pedicab driving job and returned to his village where he saw many children working in the field because they couldn’t afford education. At that time he was 74 years old and he decided to go back to his job of driving a pedicab in Tianjin. Till 2001 he worked really hard, sometimes 24 hours at a stretch so that he could make the money to pay the installment for the school fee. At the age of 90 he paid his last installment to the school and retired from his job.
