Résumé
Women groups are found all over Kenya yet their contribution to national development has not been widely publicized. This dissertation highlights the activities undertaken by women groups in North East Bunyore location in Emuhaya District within Western Province of Kenya. The study assesses the roles played by women groups in development, their capacity to achieve these developments and what can be done to enhance development through women groups. The researcher holds the view that, though women groups are core to the social welfare of the society, they are socially and economically disadvantaged. Despite their efforts in contribution to development, the government has not recognized much of their work. The study reveals that some of the key activities carried out by women groups in North East Bunyore location which include micro finance schemes, home industries, and appropriate technology innovations. The sample included five groups of women who were purposively selected, one chief of the location, four assistant chiefs and the district development officer. The researcher recommends that the findings of this study will provide the way forward for women groups in their activities, provide information for development agencies to positively respond to women groups activities in the distribution of goods and services. Presentation of the study is in five chapters namely, introduction, literature review research design and methodology, data analysis and findings, and conclusions and recommendations. This study provides insights to the policy makers, Non Governmental, Organizations, and the government on how they can socially and economically empower women groups in North East Bunyore location.
