Over one billion of people in the world today live under unacceptable conditions of poverty mostly in rural areas and this forced many countries to resort to women empowerment through creating a gap for women to participate in development of not 8nly their families but also the countries in which they leave. However, despite the incident, women are still challenged by low level of participation in community development especially in Northern Uganda which is borne out of the sentimental attachment on feminine gender. Still to make matters worse women constitute about half of the Uganda’s population yet they are not given prime of place in its development. As citizens of this great nation who form the bulk of the population, they are supposed to contribute much of their quota to the development of the country. Regrettably, they still suffer a lot of constraints and inhibition which militate against their personal development which consequently retard their contribution to the growth and development of Ugandan society
