Who are we?
Founding Members of SAVE are all those persons who shall donate US$100 or more per month for the first year towards SAVE's first (Free Primary School/Vocational Institute in Charar) project AND consent to becoming founding members. It is possible to donate US$ 100 or more without becoming a founding member. SAVE Inc. Hopes to have a core group of 25 founding members. At the moment, SAVE has 12 founding members.
Board Members (President, Treasurer, Secretary and 2 Office Holders) will be elected from among the founding members of SAVE every year, according to the provisions and procedures specified in the by-laws, which will be drafted and duly adopted by the founding members of SAVE through mutual consultation, once the number of founding members reach 25. These members will play a role in evaluating SAVE's performance, designing present and future strategies for SAVE projects as well as making decisions about the various organizational and administrative matters that would arise in the smooth and transparent running of this educational non-profit. Currently, SAVE has a provisional board, which is comprised of the following persons.
22-11 Valley Road,
Once a total of 25 founding members have been recruited, the present board will hold elections and elect a new board. Present board members will remain eligible to stand for any office, including the one they presently hold.
Donor members of SAVE, defined as all persons who have made any amount of contribution (monetary or otherwise) are a network of friends, families, relatives and acquaintances who have, through a process of mutual encouragement and word of mouth, come together to share their resources in order to make high-quality education and employment possible for under-privileged children around the globe.
It is understandable
that new donors (founding members or donor members) should want to ascertain
the credentials of the people behind SAVE before they join the initiative
and/or contribute. For this reason alone, short biographies of a few of our
Founding Members are presented below. Other founding members are
encouraged to send in their biographies to
