Founder

Sarah Robinson grew up in Columbia, SC and went to Presbyterian College where she studied Christian Education and Spanish. After graduating in 2006, Sarah spent two years in mission service with Young Adult Volunteers. Her experience serving in Guatemala and Tucson, AZ directly informed and influenced the development of Hands and Feet of Asheville.

She helped us achieve nonprofit status and served as Executive Director for two years. Not only this, but she was instrumental in solidifying our partnership with YAV. She moved on to become Executive Director for PEG Partners, an organization that sponsors schools and libraries in Guatemala, helping to expand buildings, book collections, classrooms, teacher salaries, and infrastructure.
