Anatta World Health & Education Outreach is a grassroots non-profit that creates and supports medical and educational programs in developing countries worldwide. They envision a world in which every person has access to adequate healthcare, education, and opportunity for self-empowerment. Anatta World Health & Education Outreach projects are conducted by request and through the support of direct local contacts. Feasibility studies and careful planning are at the foundation of every endeavor. They will offer support only after careful investigation of potential sites, analysis by our business team, and establishment of a trustworthy local network to ensure timely and appropriate delivery of supplies and services. They intend to further each little community they serve toward self-directed future growth and culturally guided optimization of lifestyle and opportunity. All project sites require routine follow up to document progress and evaluate ongoing need.
As an initial Anatta “Metta-Family” collaboration project, Anatta built a children’s library at the Peace Grove Nunnery in Lumbini, Nepal. The Anatta partnership is dedicated to improving health care and educational opportunities in Lumbini, building on the strong community support and foundational work of Venerables Metteyya and Bodhi. Their next project is a comprehensive rural health care program, including a hospital in Lumbini.
Anatta has collected and sent much needed donations to Global Karuna’s earthquake relief efforts and will continue their strong support when they move into the rebuilding phase.
Cornelia Santschi is Anatta’s founder and president.
