The low level of women participation in community development projects is becoming alarming and disturbing. This hampers women from contributing their quota to the development of their communities. Observations have shown that women in some position of responsibilities are noted to be hardworking and firm in their decision. The aim of the study, therefore, was to To assess the Challenges to women’s participation in community development projects at AUPAE. In achieving this, the researcher used documentary review, interviews and self administered questionnaires to generate data. 136 questionnaires were administered. Data was analyzed using a statistical package for social scientists (SPSS) where a regression analysis was run to test the hypothesis. Findings revealed that women’s roles, traditional practices and logistics negatively affect their participation in community development projects while inferiority complex has no effect on women’s participation in community development projects. Future research could explore other challenges that affect women’s participation in community development projects.
