Multi-purpose district development centres: the case of Baringo development training centre (BDTC)
MetadataShow full item record
The paper first discusses the general notion of multi-purpose training centres with the intention of putting B.D.T.C. in historical context. A brief survey of some of the developmental aspects of Baringo district is then presented with the intention of putting B.D.T.C. in developmental context. A framework for analysing B.D.T.C. is then outlined. The underlying argument in the paper is that despite the shift in emphasis by the government from traditional community development centres to the notion of District Training Centres, the latter cannot perform a significant developmental role because of certain structural constraints which in most cases are likely to be district specific.
