- Violet Evans never lacked anything as a child even though she did not come from a wealthy family
- Her father worked as a security guard and always gave her all she needed
- The teacher decided to return the favour by constructing a wonderful three-bedroomed house in the village for her dear dad
It’s the little things that count. The thought, the effort, the love behind the action and the precision – these are the things that count.
Honouring parents and rewarding them for every effort they put towards our upbringing is one of the most satisfying feelings on earth.
Violet Evans knows this. She spends every waking moment being grateful to the man who brought her to the world, raised her, schooled her and protected her.
The TSC teacher said on Facebook group Home Beautiful that she was building a home for her dad to thank him for every sacrifice he made while she was young.
The daughter had started constructing a three-bedroomed house and though the process was slow, it will always be satisfying to her.
Violet said she started building the home two years back and though it is not yet complete, she just loves seeing how far she has come.
“This man you see here is my father. He used to work as a watchman in Sotik, Kiptenden Estate,” she narrated.
Though her dad did not earn much, Violet always got what she needed as a kid.
“It is my time to give back and make sure he lacks nothing too,” she added.
