Ségou Villages: The Wisdom of Bambara Proverbs

  30 October 2011

Proverbs are short expressions of popular wisdom. In Mali, many of these sayings can be found in the Bambara language, which is the most widely understood language in the country, especially in the Ségou region. It is here where the Rising Voices grantee projects Ségou Villages Connection is teaching rural residents how to use the internet to share stories. However, these proverbs can also be found on various other blogs and Twitter conversations.
