The conceptual model that was employed in this study involved a number of variables including Respondent age, respondent education, family size, level of family income, number of training courses in which women participated, … etc. Both primary and secondary data were used. Primary data were obtained through the field survey by means of a structural questionnaire, and secondary data were obtained from the organization documents, Ministry of Agriculture in Red Sea State, thesis, official reports and other relevant sources. Quota sampling procedure was employed for the selection of the respondents constituting the sample (100 rural women). The sample was selected from four villages, (twenty five) Respondents from each village of Eat, Arkyy, Salalasir and Mohammed Gol. A number of statistical analysis techniques were employed for data presentation and testing of the study hypotheses, included percentage, frequency distribution t-test analysis and correlation. The main results obtained from the study include: - Family size had reversed relationship on training by reducing participation. - The respondent's age had reversed relationship on the training by diminishing participation. The result of t-test showed that there is no significant difference between participant and non-participant women in ACORD activities. - Lack of skills in building capability in educational institutions of rural community had negative effect on education level. Result of correlation analysis:- - Participation in ACORD activities correlated negatively with type of nutrition. - Participation in ACORD activities is correlated negatively with participant level of writing and reading.

Improvement of the infrastructure of the locality, such as roads and communication as well as the provision of social services such as education and health should be emphasized. 3. The Government should rehabitate the road that link Halayeb with Port Sudan to encourage development in the area.
