African Proverbs, Sayings and Stories Website (including the “African Stories Database”)

https://afriprov.tangaza.ac.ke

This is our window into African Oral Literature and African culture in general from a Christian perspective. Over these 26 years (1998 – 2024), this has been a joint ecumenical project (different churches, religious denominations and religious groups) and a joint academic project (with educational institutional partnerships).

In 1998, we started the African Proverbs Working Group (APWG). Through the help of the Urban Ministries Serving God (UMSG) Office based in Nairobi, Kenya, we started our Internet Website, then later our Facebook Page and now other social media such as WhatsApp (including the “Afriprov Working Group”). Over the last 26 years, we have continued to develop our database, including our collection of proverbs from 49 different African nations. 149 African Languages are represented in the 297 “African Proverbs of the Month.” A key feature is the Endangered African Proverbs Collections – over 60 collections of 100 proverbs each in lesser-known African languages under E-Books on our website.
