a few words from Penny, who builds the Project HappyChild website   [updated 1st January 2024]

Thanks for visiting! Project HappyChild has received over 125 million visits worldwide since 4th March 1998. Traffic levels vary from month to month and the "Live Counters" now in all areas of the site mean you can see the ongoing visit levels for the original areas, below, in "real time". Our thanks to Chami - see the Sponsors page. For reference we've included below the counts as they were at 00.01am GMT on 1st January 2024.

Project HappyChild is non-profit and this site is here to offer free educational resources, link up children and schools across the world, and also highlight the needs of less fortunate kids.

There's a "site links table" on all main pages (eg see the Welcome Page) which links to around 40 separate areas/themes. All Newsletters since this website was first created are still accessible, and the final issue is now on line here. The Latest Site News page [which includes links to all the Newsletter archives] will be updated whenever the remaining new material from outside contributors is uploaded (in stages) to the site pages.

Most recent updates (or those awaiting content from outside contributors) include:

[1] "dual-language worksheets" - see the Translators' page for details of the language-sets currently in preparation, or for which help is requested. Those on line already include French-English verbs + vocabulary (800+ worksheets), Romanian-English verbs + vocabulary (800+ worksheets), German-English verbs + vocabulary (800+ worksheets), Russian-English verbs + vocabulary (800+ worksheets), Polish-English verbs + vocabulary (800+ worksheets), Dutch-English verbs + vocabulary (800+ worksheets), Italian-English verbs (390+ worksheets), Arabic-English verbs + vocabulary (800+ worksheets), Urdu-English verbs + vocabulary (800+ worksheets), Turkish-English vocabulary (400+ worksheets), Spanish-English verbs + vocabulary (650+ worksheets so far), Bulgarian-English vocabulary (400+ worksheets) and Hungarian-English verbs (390+ worksheets).

The most complex addition in this area is Chinese-English vocabulary (2400+ worksheets) - there are six sets - English to Mandarin, English to Pinyin SC, Pinyin SC to Mandarin, and English to Cantonese, English to Pinyin TC, Pinyin TC to Cantonese.

The *English* content of the dual-language worksheet sets is the same - so that children from different countries can learn English side-by-side in classrooms. Every time we're able to add a new dual-language set, that makes the whole process progressively easier.

All we need now is more volunteers!   we can generate all the 800+ worksheets and overview pages for a whole new language set within literally days of receiving the translated and checked databases. If you're a language professional (or a native speaker educated to degree level) and you'd like to help, please see the Translators' page for how to get in touch with us.   You'll be in good company - see the Credits page.

[2] Andy's Guide to Pokémon has been massively expanded (eg see the Red/Blue/Yellow pokédex) to integrate help sent in by site visitors since the year 2000, and the Platinum pokédex has also now gone on line. We're delighted to say that Andy came back to help with the final selection of cheats, tips, shortcuts and help messages, and the remaining new content for this area went up on line on 26th February 2011.

[3] Keywords for Learning - we eventually completed the adding of the new lists (and all the new index pages) for this area, for over 1600 word search puzzles in all. All the new puzzles are now on line, as of 1st September 2022.

[4] 3D Gridbuilding - Science ~ now properly "open for visitors". This new area covers the basic factors of science - aimed at GCSE-level understanding, it's a series of many interlinked definitions of "what things are" - from atoms to cells, from hydrocarbons to sewage. Pages like "waves" or "molecules" show the sort of lateral linking that is now in place (automatically, by means of the programming behind the scenes) - check out the "BACK LINKS" on those pages, underneath the definition. See Area 16 for more details of how this whole science project came into being. More content was originally scheduled for the individual "elements" pages, but such basic information is widely available elsewhere and the whole resource (over 3600 pages) is now complete as it stands.

[5] Writing Practice Worksheets ~ we've had a great many requests for worksheets to practise writing individual letters and numbers - but have as you know had a continuous schedule of pagebuilding to create all the other planned resources :/ We're delighted to say we were finally able to map out this area and make all the worksheets, and the complete set of 200+ Writing Practice Worksheets went on line just before the site reached 100 million visits.

[6] Times Tables Chanting Worksheets ~ the original 50 "Times Tables" worksheets have been hugely popular ever since this area of the site first went on line, but in response to requests we've added two "chanting worksheets" (51+52), for use if/when required.

All the educational resources we build on the site here are free, so that they're available to children anywhere. If you'd like to "give something back" (and if you're in a financial position to do so) we'd very much appreciate your support for the many charities who help children, shown in the Project HappyChild Directory and the international "projects helping kids" areas including the Americas, Europe + Asia, Australasia, and Africa.

Support would also be welcomed for Events raising funds for disadvantaged kids, and for crisis appeals anywhere in the world. Thank you :)

Best regards,
