Mercel Mpombo Nsomue proposed to collect Maore (?) (Madagascar) proverbs with the assistance of a friend from Madagascar.

5. A second workshop session on how to compile a booklet of 100 proverbs was also held. Emphasis was placed on formatting the various pages of the booklet as well as the content of each section. Proverbs collectors and compilers were asked to consult for reference purposes the previous collections of 100 proverbs posted at the African Proverbs, Sayings and Stories Website, www.afriprov.org .

6. There being no other business the meeting was adjourned at 3.40 p.m. The next meeting is scheduled to be held early in 2015.
