  • Nosy Baraha, or Île Sainte-Marie, is a long narrow tropical island in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Madagascar. The island has a single paved road running its length. Like other Malagasy stchoolchildren, students on Sainte-Marie wear uniforms and ride their bicycles to school. However, those who live on the the tiny islet of Nattes, off the south end of Sainte-Marie, are ferried every day by pirogue across the narrow channel at road’s end. For these students heading home from school, it’s a fun blend of the old and new.

    Product Description

    The 2020 International Calendar is available for purchase!

    Featured in 2020 are the following current or former Peace Corps countries of service: Benin, Rwanda, Colombia, Namibia, Peru, Ethiopia, Kyrgyzstan, Tonga, South Africa, Myanmar, Uganda, and Armenia. In addition, the 2020 cover photo from Madagascar captures a slice of life on an especially tiny Malagasy island in the Indian Ocean.

    The 2020 calendar offers fabulous photographs and interesting information about the cultures and peoples of these thirteen countries. Every dayblock in the calendar lists holidays, holy days, or other events observed somewhere in the world—from independence days to religious celebrations to the birthdays of people who have helped shape the world.

    Want to know when to watch for meteor showers or solar eclipses in 2020? Or when the Buck Moon will make its appearance in the coming year? The International Calendar has all that and more—including the timing of new moons and all full moons. You can even look ahead to see what to expect in 2021, including many of the important moveable holy days in various calendar systems.

      Although I receive free calendars from numerous non-profits, I always enjoy the wonderful calendar created by the RPCVs of WI-Madison. It's my favorite calendar every year, and also the favorite of those I gift them to.
