From April 29-30, 2017, The Hub held a community clean up with Africa’s Green Generation (AGG) in Morija. They did a great job combining environmental education with fun activities for the 50+ participants!
AGG is an environmental organisation based in Maseru, which works with youth in their community of Moshoshoe II to build healthier, greener and cleaner communities.
Over our two-day community clean up, we collected two pickup truck loads of waste, which will be used by Nebulart Recycling Group for making eco bricks as well as upcycled and recycled decorations, furniture and more. They also held a demo for participants on some of the things that can be created from waste.
Nebulart Recycling Group is a youth run NGO based in Maseru that works to promote recycling and sustainable waste management in Lesotho.
Through participation in the community clean up, 25 people in Morija earned sponsored memberships to The Hub, and can now join all our other activities. The clean up was sponsored by Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa, special thanks to them for their ongoing support of our programming!
Conservation Music came through on the first day of the clean up and put together this great video!
Conservation Music is a multinational collective of musicians, photographers, filmmakers, and conservationists who believe in the power of music to spur positive change.
Big thanks to everyone who made our community clean up a success – Africa’s Green Generation, volunteers of The Hub, all the participants, Nebulart Recycling Group, Conservation Music and KanGFong ?!. We would also like to thank Cafe Mojo for keeping us well fed over the weekend!
