The Hub @ Morija
The Hub is a creative technology lab that provides affordable access to computers, the internet, a library, and digital media training in Morija. Our primary target is young people between the ages of 10-35, and through our various activities, we aim to foster a community of young people in Lesotho who are skilled, inspired, motivated, and socially conscious.
The Hub is a partner in the developing Morija Cultural Precinct, which also includes the Morija Museum and Archives (MMA), the Morija Arts Centre, Maeder House Gallery, Heritage Park, the Morija Amphitheatre, and Cafe Mojo. This collaborative community of arts, learning, and business enterprises builds on Morija’s history as a cultural and tourism destination. The precinct partners share resources and customers to provide a richer customer experience and a more sustainable business environment.
Having a place for young people to go and socialise that does not centre on alcohol or drug use and is a supplement or alternative to sport, will play a vital role in reducing social isolation and improving levels of social inclusion and social interaction. This positive social environment will be enhanced by providing opportunities to increase self-belief and self-esteem through the acquisition of new skills. Furthermore, young people who use technology to experience new modes of artistic expression gain a better understanding of the present technological age. Through their artistic expression, young people will learn critical thinking by observing, interpreting, and synthesizing a range of information and ideas.
