The 2007 African Proverbs Calendar Online
The 2007 African Proverbs Calendar is online on the African Proverbs, Sayings and Stories Website (! Check under the Resources link on the left hand side of the page. The direct link is:

The 2007 calendar includes a selection of 12 African Proverbs from 20 different African countries: Algeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, DRC, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo and Uganda.

The full explanation of the proverb including the Biblical parallels can be accessed by clicking on EXPLANATION. This calendar includes a map of Africa with the subject country highlighted in yellow. 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 (i.e. "Patience," "Advice," "Celebration") that corresponds to the proverb of that month, along with African-themed photographs.

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 2007 go to: Quiet Thoughts Greeting Cards Website:
