Blurb/Shorttext:
The study sought to explore technology challenges faced by some rural women in Intsika-Yethu and Emalahleni municipalities, under the Chris Hani District Municipality, in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. Available literature reveals that some rural women in South Africa and other developing parts of the world face technology challenges. Data were collected through in-depth interviews and focus group interviews. Data were presented, analysed and discussed according to the themes derived from the sub-research questions. It emerged from the study that while most women in both municipalities were aware of ICT, the women were facing accessibility, affordability, availability, ICT skills and unavailability of electricity challenges in most areas of the municipalities. The findings do not depict the South African government national ICT policy goals which realises the importance of technology in the integration of services for the development of rural areas. Designing intervention programs for secondary school and some rural women, as well as monitoring and evaluating ICT programs in rural areas are recommended.
