dc.description.abstractThe project covered Community Human Capacity Building on group dynamics, business skills and accounting record keeping. The organization which managed the project was Maasai Women Development Organization. People involved in the project were the researcher, MWEDO staff and the targeted three member groups, in total there were 90 individuals. The intended period for the project was 18 months, from September 2005 to January 2007. The target groups were carrying out small scale businesses mainly on Maasai hand crafts, embroidering, buying and selling maize. Findings from community needs assessment indicated that women lacked knowledge and skills especially in the field of accounts record keeping, and entrepreneurship. Hence, they could not diversify their businesses. The project desired condition was to build the ability of individuals and organization to work together in order to take control of their economic future. Also strengthen individual skills and create opportunities for individual skill development. What the project had achieved was to build human capacity of Community Development Officer to ensure sustainability of the project after elapse of 18 months. The researcher also developed a simple training manual and conducted training to targeted women groups. (Author abstract)en_US
