  • 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.

    I always love the calendar. Awareness of events and honors in faraway places provides memories and hopes for international communication.

    We have been getting the RPCV calendar since my wife completed her service in 2000. Our children's teachers here in Upstate NY who are RPCVs were delighted to receive the calendars as holiday gifts.

    I order about ten calendars a year. They make great gifts, and everyone loves them.

  6. Not just beautiful but a helpful tool 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 12th 2021

    I was gifted a 2020 calendar from an RPCV last year, and I realized how much I loved that calendar and missed having it when I sat down to outline my class syllabi this term to plan due dates and important deadlines around people's important days of remembrance and religious observances. Further, since I have so many friends who served in the PC, this helps me to feel a bit closer to them, as well.

    Posted by on Jan 5th 2021

    Had to pay $ 4.63 postage due.....after paying for calendar and shipping. Would recommend another type of mailer or different method of delivery.

  10. My calendar of choice 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 5th 2021

    As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, the calendar has a special meaning for me, and we have bought these for years and years. It's also a great calendar. I do not look on the gallery of photos on the back, so I can be surprised by the great photo every time I turn to the new month.
