"News and Views" includes a wide range of themes and there are several regions in Area 6 - Projects helping Children worldwide, the latest News of everything happening across the site, the website Guestbook [including a number of appeals for help], FOCUS, where we throw the spotlight on items of interest to schools, parents and children, Creativity [stories, artwork, poems, articles, jokes and a large selection of Aesop's Fables], and some interesting articles from Kathryn Watts about the lifestyles of kids in other countries.
Projects Helping Children Worldwide area has recently been massively overhauled and added to [there's now a colour-coded alphabetical index to countries and regions], and we've created new index pages for the different continents, along with links for organizations like SOS Children's Villages and a number of projects in India including child fish workers and the Bethany Home for destitute children. Any support any of you can offer for organizations like these would be much appreciated :)
Our thanks to all visitors to Project HappyChild who responded to the Appeal (on site from December 1999) from Scott McDonald, Task Force Falcon, USA, for supplies, such as pens, pencils, crayons, paper for the school sponsored by the 709th MP Battalion in Kosovo. Scott McDonald's follow-up letter is included on the previous Appeal page.
The original story in our Creativity area - "Glaxibel The Avenger" still receives many page views - as do the 220 Aesop's Fables now on line. It isn't planned to add any new content to the Creativity area in the months ahead (please see "The Journey" page) but there's an outside chance we may be able to do so again at some time in the future.
