Abstract:Aim of this study is to assess the educational backgrounds and socio-economic needs and achievements of a sample of women in one rural location in Western Kenya and to compare the results with a similar sample of women in Central Kenya. The paper describes the setting in which the study was undertaken, the educational backgrounds of the women surveyed and explicates the strategies Bukusu women (Bungoma District, Western Province) use through women's groups to achieve their development goals. It compares the backgrounds, needs and achievements of these women with a similar sample of Gikuyu women (Kirinyaga District, Central Province), and draws some conclusions with particular reference to education among rural women in Kenya. - Map, notes, ref., tab.
