The Hub is a creative technology lab in Morija, Lesotho that aims to provide the community with affordable internet access and digital media training.
The primary focus is to:

Having a place for young people to go and socialise that does not centre on alcohol or drug use, and is an alternative to sport or religious activities, will play a vital role in reducing social isolation and improve 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 acquiring of new skills.
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.
The Hub is located at Morija Museum & Archives in Morija, Lesotho.
