Kelly and Hanel Padgett founded Reach Ph in 2021 after several years of searching for a way to combat the darkness of sexual trafficking in Hanel’s native country, the Philippines. Kelly and Hanel sold all of their possessions in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and moved to Cebu, Philippines, to plant a safe house and rescue anyone craving hope and freedom. They have a daughter, Khaley, and a son, Clarrence.
As a graduate of Jose Rizal Memorial State University, Hanel has a passion for learning and helping others achieve their academic life goals and support their families. Hanel enjoys creating new confections and pushing the envelope of baking while using her family as guinea pigs for her creations. She loves to sing and dance and cannot walk away from a Karaoke microphone.
