Welcome to the 2021 International Conference on 50 years of Adult Education in Tanzania, focusing specifically on providing an opportunity for stakeholders to reflect on the past, present and future of policy and practice in adult education in Tanzania. We would like to thank you for coming to the Conference, and we hope you will enjoy.
