About the Journal

MOJA Journal of Adult Education 01
The MOJA Journal of Adult Education is a journal committed to sharing and advancing knowledge and practical experience among the African adult education community to benefit the continent and its people. It is transdisciplinary in nature and strives to be inclusive in scope by accepting contributions which promote the intersection of theory and practice in adult learning and education in Africa. Practitioners, researchers and academics across all levels and sectors of adult education and adjacent fields are invited to submit contributions.

The MOJA Journal for Adult Education was launched in May 2022 following the establishment of the MOJA Digital Platform in April 2021. It is published once a year; each volume is dedicated to one major theme. The Journal is published in English and French and distributed in Africa and internationally. The Journal is mainly online with a small print-run. The Journal is financed by the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development. It is free of charge and downloadable from the MOJA platform.
