  • Four friends take a break from working their families’ terrace farms on the steep slopes of Nirmalidanda, a village in the hills of eastern Nepal. Subsistence farming is the mainstay of Nepali hill people, who grow rice, millet, corn, and wheat, plus vegetables and fruits. Between Nepal’s tropical lowlands and the arctic climate of the high Himalaya Mountains, the fertile middle hills are home to an ancient culture that has developed from Tibeto-Burman groups that migrated over the Himalaya and live alongside Indo-Aryan peoples who came up from India.

Product Description

Help us celebrate Peace Corps’ 60th anniversary in 2021! Since Peace Corps was established in 1961 by President John F. Kennedy, volunteers have fanned out across the globe to serve in 142 countries. Now, with all volunteers temporarily evacuated and recalled home due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it is especially critical to call attention to and support the important work that Peace Corps Volunteers do worldwide.

The 2021 International Calendar is a look at 13 of the 142 countries where Peace Corps Volunteers have served since 1961. In addition to Namibia, Guatemala, India, Ghana, MYanmar, Colombia, Peru, Rwanda, South Africa, and Russia, for the first time Chad and Costa Rica are featured. The 2021 cover photo—of four friends taking a break from working on their families’ terrace farms—was taken in the high Himalaya Mountains of Nepal.

Our calendar researchers consult solar, lunar, and astronomical calendars to determine the dates of important events each year. Do you want to know when solar eclipses or meteor showers will occur in 2021? Or on what day in August the Green Corn Moon will be full? From religious high holy days to important civic dates to annual local market days, you’ll find much to inform and entertain you.

Along with photos and demographic information about each featured country, there are lists of suggested recipes to try and music, films, and books to explore. For a list of current and past suggestions, just click on the “Cultural Resources” button or check out our “Educator Resources.”

We are thrilled to have you purchase directly from us, but you might be able to support an RPCV group near you by buying your 2021 calendar from them. To find out If there is a local group near you selling the 2021 International Calendar, click on Groups selling the calendar.

Contact us to see how your group can sell the calendar for your own fundraising efforts.

Thanks for your interest in the calendar from Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) of Wisconsin–Madison.

    There is no other calendar like this. The quality and variety of the images are outstanding. How can you resist a calendar which provides a holiday EVERY DAY? I have been buying these, for myself and as gifts, for more than two decades. My gift recipients have come to rely on me every year for their calendar.

    I have been ordering the Wisconsin RPCV calendar since the 90s. I know I am supporting their RPCV efforts, but I also enjoy the monthly photos, and, especially, the abundance of day-to-day information.

    I've purchased a bunch of these calendars for the last 18 years at least, for myself and to send to family and friends. The pictures are always gorgeous, the information fun and useful, and the cause, making peace, more important every year. Congratulations on another beautiful calendar.
