Q: How do these Affirmation cards work/what was the intended purpose of this project?
A: Affirmations are positive phrases or statements that you say to yourself to challenge unhelpful or negative thoughts. You may choose positive affirmations to motivate yourself, encourage positive changes or boost your self-esteem. If you often find yourself getting caught up in negative self-talk, positive affirmations can be used to assist you. You can train your brain to think in a more positive and beneficial way to promote wellbeing. Once affirmations are learned, they work by coming to mind when a belief is challenged.
The intended purpose of African Affirmations is to build self-esteem and a sense of pride and belonging through positive representation to raise healthy children. Themes focus on highlighting each child’s uniqueness, accepting oneself and others, improving self-esteem and building positive beliefs about oneself and the world they are in.
Q: How many cards are in each set?
A: 30 with an additional wild card for children to create their own affirmation.
Q: In what languages are the cards available?
A: English and Braille. Other African languages coming soon!
