Party of the Alliance of Youth, Workers and Farmers of Angola or (Pajoca, abbreviation of Partido da Aliança Juventude, Operários e Camponeses de Angola) is an opposition party in Angola. The president of Pajoca is Alexandre Sebastião André and the general secretary is Jesus Kabanga. The party was founded in Luanda, on January 19, 1991.

Pajoca favours far-reaching autonomy for the Cabinda enclave.

In the 1992 elections Pajoca received 13,924 votes (0.35%) and got one MP elected, Alexandre Sebastião André. In the presidential election, PAJOCA supported the People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) candidate.[1]

In 1998 there was internal turmoil in Pajoca, with then president Sebastião Miguel Tetembwa expelling Alexandre Sebastião André. The first party congress was convened, which elected Alexandre Sebastião André as the new president. The congress also approved a new party constitution.

The women's organization of Pajoca is known as Organização da mulher do Pajoca - OMI-PA.
