Please vote in the POLL on the right side on: "My favourite African Proverb of Month on animals is..."

We also have an African Story Database” that is an online, searchable, user-friendly collection of 572 African stories including folktales, historical fiction pieces, myths, parables, poems, prayers, riddles, song-proverbs and true stories. These African stories cover a wide variety of topics and occasions. The database is made of up stories containing over 140 different themes and sub-themes.
