Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v41 n1 p110-23 Apr 2001
Interviews with 120 rural Nigerian women found that 96% participate in self-help community development projects and 68% were engaged in farming. Constrains on participation included domestic responsibilities, lack of funding and resources, male domination, and politics. There was a significant relationship between their sociocultural beliefs and participation in self-help projects. (Contains 19 references.) (SK)
