The URL for January, 2003 is: African Proverbs Calendar 2003
Starting in January, 2003 the calendar includes a selection of 12 African Proverbs from different African countries: Botswana, Benin, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. NOTE: This is a totally different selection of proverbs than used in the African Proverbs Calendar 2002. The full explanation of the proverb including the Biblical parallels can be accessed by clicking on EXPLANATION. A map of the country of that particular proverb can be accessed by clicking on the name of the country on the EXPLANATION page. There is a theme for each month such as “Wisdom” (for January, 2003) that corresponds to the proverb of that month. There are colorful photographs that correspond to the proverb of that month.
You can print out the calendar and use it as a Wall Calendar or as a Desk Calendar. For one creative online use of the calendar for each month in 2002 go to: Quiet Thoughts Greeting Cards Website:

This African Proverbs Calendar 2003 has taken months to design and produce. Special thanks go to Nicholas Adongo and Joseph Kariuki. Your comments, critique and further suggestions are welcome. We are particularly interested in how you reproduce, distribute and use this calendar (Africa-related groups, schools, religious groups, community organizations, other websites, etc.).
We plan to choose 12 new African proverbs for the 2004 Calendar. We depend on interested people to continue to send in new African Proverbs (especially from new African countries) in the three paragraph format. See the “African Proverb of the Month” on our website for examples.
