This chapter outlines some African learning traditions and the Lesotho contemporary context, followed by an introduction to organisations that specifically address the needs of older people in Lesotho. After discussing some recent research into pensioner interest in learning, the chapter describes a case study of one successful university-community engagement learning initiative for Lesotho pensioners which drew on local resources to stimulate motivation and create learning opportunities. Finally, the chapter concludes with some reflections on what older adult learning might look like in 10 years’ time in the country. It highlights the potential for stimulating learning interest among the elderly in Lesotho by recruiting some of the more educated elders as learning facilitators.
