2020 - International Calendar

International Calendar 2020

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.

Want to know more? For each featured country in 2020, we’ve compiled recipes to try and music, films, and books to explore. Just click on the “Cultural Resources” button or check out “Educator Resources.”

You can buy calendars and notecards directly from us or you can “buy local”—from an RPCV group in your area. To find out if there’s a local group near you selling the 2020 International Calendar, click on Groups selling the calendar.
