We are please to announce that Walter Thinfen has accepted our invitation to serve as Vice President of SAVE-INTL following the resignation of Christine Whitman. Curt Degler and Walt have known each other since the 80’s and both now call Livermore CA home. Walt possesses a special understanding of the problems facing poor rural third world people as he grew up in Yap, an island in Micronesia. Currently Walt works in an executive capacity for a technology company in Pleasanton CA. It is hoped that Walt will find an opportunity in the near future to visit Northern Tamilnadu India to become better acquainted with the grass-level community development programs sponsored and directed by SAVE-INTL for the benefit of the socially disadvantaged rural poor. Welcome!
