A Kenyan woman is over the moon after she finally achieved her childhood dream of building her parents a luxurious home.
Rose Waithira left her parents in joy and excitement after going out of her way to build them a three-bedroomed house in Kambiti, Muranga county, Kenya.
Speaking to a trusted Kenyan news outlet Tuko.co.ke, the mother of one said as a young girl, she always desired to build her parents a home because she was touched by the sacrifice they made to raise her and her siblings.
"This dream started when I was like 10 years old. I always felt I wanted to change their lives," she said.

This dream kept pushing her until sometime last year when, though she felt she did not have enough money, she still decided to get started.
"I believe in the word begin. With the few coins I had, I started getting the building materials in July 2021. I thank God there is no day the construction stopped because I did not have money. God provided for," she said.
Pomp and colour as the house is launched
And on June 5, 2022, it was pomp and colour as family and friends joined Waithira in launching the house for her parents who said they were excited and in disbelief.
"My parents could not believe such a thing is possible and until now, they are still amazed of the achievement. They were so happy and proud of me," she narrated.
