Abstract

Provision of improved wells is part of the Integrated Agricultural Development Programme (IADP) in Sierra Leone. This study surveys the wells development scheme of two Integrated Agricultural Development Programmes (IADPs). The schemes are meant to address women and their needs in rural areas. It is believed that women have to spend too much time gathering water, therefore, they are unable to be involved in economic activities-farming and trading. The schemes are meant to release labour from water collection to be used in economic activities.
The time budgets of women in two villages with improved wells(Gboworbu and Kambia) and two villages without improved wells (Saina and Rolilia) are not significantly different. Improved wells in the first two villages have not saved women’s time collecting water. (The rest omitted)
