Anatta has also collected and sent much needed donations to Global Karuna (our earthquake relief branch) and will continue their strong support when they move into the rebuilding phase. Cornelia Santschi is Anatta’s founder and president.
OPAM is our major partner in Germany and together we have worked to help grow the educational opportunities for the children of Lumbini. OPAM was established with the aim to promote literacy in the world as a means of empowering rural communities to combat poverty and oppression, and to pave the road for development.
President of OPAM, Mr. Werner Mays, visited Lumbini in 2010 and came to know Venerable Metteyya through a mutual friend, Prof. Bernadette Broeskamp. Venerable Metteyya travels to Germany on the invitation of OPAM to participate in their programs and to visit local schools.
