dc.description.abstract Television, computers and mobile phones can facilitate communication, processing and transmission of information. Singh (1999) defines rural development as the process that lead to sustainable improvement of the quality of life of the rural poor. Rural women play a major role in rural development. ICTs have the potential to improve the quality of lives of the rural women. Information and Communication Technologies for Rural Women’s Development (ICT4WD (Joseph 2007) research stems from the lack of understanding of rural women’s capabilities for their development through the use of ICTs. ICT4WD is an ongoing project that facilitates the development of rural women using ICTs. The aim of this project is to create awareness of the potential of ICTs and to improve the quality of life of rural women through the use of ICTs in developmental projects. This chapter covers only some aspects of the above ICT4WD research project. en_US
