Big smiles for finding kindred spirits in growth mindset and a passion for transforming education!

Our RLabs Tanzania family are thrilled to launch a new partnership with TeachUnited and Legacy Academy to train their Grow Leadership facilitators to coach teachers.

When education doesn't give young people what they need for fulfilling and independent adult lives, it leaves them feeling hopeless and abandoned. Since 2012 they have been working with out of school youth to restore their hope, but a long-held dream for the RLabs and Legacy teams has been to solve the problem at the root. They'll be empowering teachers to empower students with confidence, critical thinking skills, growth mindset and better academic outcomes!


Take a small step. The small step will get you going with Expansion. Taking opportunities is a way of growing.

That you are not able to do what you have set out for yourself?

1. Doubt will always come and creep in. (Get Clarity)
2. Sometimes we do not want to go for things or expand, because we are caught up in our past. (Forgive Yourself)
3. Failure is not a disappointment, It’s an appointment.

Takeover Tuesday


Adjust Your Space:

1. Do not remain in a place that is stagnant.
2. You have to leave your comfort zone.
3. Be courageous and expand your place.


The first step on the path to positive change is acknowledgement that change is necessary and possible. Open yourself to the possibility of seeing the world in a new way.

What do you have to lose?
