PJ Kehoe

PJ Kehoe joined the With My Own Two Hands team travelling to Kenya in January, 2015. This trip had a significant impact on PJ in that, having lost her husband in 2014, she was searching as to what direction her life should take and was inspired by the following thought: “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away”.

PJ felt so blessed to visit the girls at a rescue center in Kajaro, Kenya. The girls at the center have been victims of FGM – female genital mutilation as well as been sold into early marriages. PJ was inspired by their resilience and hope for a better life by receiving an education.

PJ is committed to supporting the With My Own Two Hands Foundation as she tributes WMO2H for the wonderful miracle that is unfolding within her spirit, a result of her trip to Kenya.  She also is spreading the word that volunteering has no age boundaries (PJ is in her mid-sixties!).

Stephanie Servin

Stephanie joined the With My Own Two Hands team in January 2016. Her trip to Kenya was unlike anything else she had experienced. Even though Stephanie is an Orange County native, she does not set limits as to where she can travel in the world; for she wants to see it all, meet new people and learn about new cultures and customs. It is a never ending journey for her. One of Stephanie’s many things she enjoys doing is volunteering her time to help others, which is why she is so incredibly honored to be an Ambassador for With My Own Two Hands. During her visit to Kenya and meeting all the girls and directors of the different projects that With My Own Two Hands supports, Stephanie found it very difficult to say goodbye. Thus, she is dedicated to helping With My Own Two Hands carry out their mission and creating a better world for young children to grow up in, in order to lay down a solid foundation for their future success.
