dc.description.abstract The research report in this study is an attempt to ascertain young women's needs for non-formal education and training programs in the area of Thulamahashe. The study explored - through the combination of personal survey interviews and direct observation - the needs as expressed by these women in the area. The study focuses on empowerment for rural women and involves activities such as vocational education and non-formal education programs. Evidence from the study suggests that the members of the research sample view themselves as victims of unemployment. Findings from the study suggest that these women are losing community status and they need to be helped to acquire a skill through non-formal training programs. The main implications of the findings are: (1) There is a need for non-formal education and training programs in the area. (2) There is a need for the community leaders to seek financial assistance from non-Governmental Organisations (NGO's) so that these women can be trained and be self-employed. en
