Description: This article describes a snapshot ethnography conducted in Uganda with the Agabagaya Women's Group. The purpose of the study was to explore how women share knowledge among themselves to support their communities. Using post-development theory and Freire's critical theory as a lens, I argue that although international development is often focused on women's education, imposed development initiatives may actually hinder women's ability to share meaningful knowledge. I conclude with a discussion of key points and how they relate to education within a context of development and within post-development theory. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
