First, a little 'prelude'. I had decided to put up this website in 2006 as at that time, I could find little to no online resources for helping children learn to read Urdu. Not being a computer person (by that I mean I'm not a graphic designer/ digital artist, not to mention IT or Computer Science professional... in other words, a complete amateur!), it was rather time consuming and taxing for me to consult online tutorials to try and learn how to create the simplest of games! By and by, I began to come across other sites with similar purposes and my own efforts started waning somewhat... as I felt that I could relax and let the professionals take over and do a better job!
However, after still continuing to receive so many encouraging and heartwarming comments on this website and more so via email, I would like to sincerely thank my visitors for your overwhelming support and let you all know that I have decided upon a massive upgrade!! And for that, I could do with some helping hands So if you think that this effort of mine in the cause of preserving our "mother tongue" (thus our heritage) is worthy enough, and/or if your children or students have gained some benefit from my work, please consider pitching in by:
1) Linking to UrduWords!
Simply share the URL (by using the 'share' tool on the home page or by copy/pasting the following link: http://urduwords.webs.com ... Spread the word!!
2) Planting ideas in my head
You can apprise me of how I could improve upon the existing material or come up with suggestions for new content! I would, of course, acknowledge you by name or inititals... howsoever you wish
3) Creating your own Urdu teaching material!
You could make games, activities, workbooks, flashcards, even songs etc. and allow me to host them on this website... again, with full acknowledgement on my part I've already been linking to other Urdu websites, so keep them coming!
4) Advising me with your valuable insight!
Please provide me with feedback, *constructive* criticism, analysis & so on... about what works or how it could work better and I'll try and incorporate your pearls of wisdom into my future upgrade plans
5) Financially supporting the upkeep of UrduWords!
Last, but not the least, in order to accommodate more & more resources, I plan to upgrade from a free server to a 'premium' one soon. In this regard, it would be really generous of you to
click the button below and donate a small sum of money consider buying at least some of the PowerPoints if not all!!l
Long time visitors may have noticed that some of the content that used to be totally free of cost is now being monetized... I felt the need to take this step since hardly any donations were collected in all this time... and funds are still required, primarily to help offset the cost of expanding this website! However, resources such as worksheets and Flash previews for some of the PowerPoints shall remain freely accessible to one and all
