SULEJA

The first Hello Hub was built in November 2013 in the courtyard of a public Islamic school in Suleja, Nigeria. Even though it is located on school grounds, the Hub is accessible to the entire community.

Over 500 people from the surrounding neighbourhoods, men and women, boys and girls, participated in the build, and over 700 people attended the “Go Live!” celebrations.

As it was the first building project for Hello World, there were many unknowns to work through, but the resourceful and committed community of Suleja came together as a team and solved all of them.

Current project monitoring shows that the Hello Hub in Suleja is mainly used for education, connectivity, community journalism, business and play. Half of the children who use the Hello Hub do not have access to formal schooling.
