Planning and development of extension training in rural development at the Bukura Institute of Agriculture, Kenya



Planning and development of extension training in rural development at the Bukura Institute of Agriculture, Kenya



Dissertation Abstracts International, A 39(6): p. 3301



The objectives of the project were: (1) to develop a new curricula and instructional programme for training extension workers to serve the rural population, (2) the development of an institutional model for agricultural extension training based on local conditions and needs, which could be adapted by other training institutions elsewhere in Africa, and (3) the development of a training programme that integrates the economic and social aspects of rural development and thereby produces skilled manpower capable of implementing integrated rural development strategies and programmes. Four major project activities were implemented: Staff development, Assessment of farmer extension needs, Curriculum development and the creation of an Outreach programme. As a result of these activities a comprehensive programme for training extension workers was developed and accepted by the Kenyan Government in 1977 as a national model, to be adopted by other agricultural/rural training institutions in Kenya.
