We are Madison, Wisconsin's Returned Peace Corps Volunteers group. Our primary mission in creating and producing the International Calendar is to address the 3rd goal of the Peace Corps – to promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of US citizens.
First created in 1987 by a few inspired individuals, the calendar is now produced primarily through the continued dedication of over 50 volunteers who help throughout the year. Production has grown from 2,000 calendars printed in 1988 to over 37,000 printed in 2012.
All proceeds from the calendar go to support education and development projects around the world.
What your purchase supports.
“Since 1987 the RPCV international calendar has generated more than $780,000 for grassroots projects around the world, including the Madison Community Garden Program and new school in Vietnam. And it gets even greener…the calendar has always been printed on recycled paper and with soy ink!”
