Abstract: Non-formal education is the provision of moderately structured learning activities to a group of individuals who missed the opportunity of being educated at appropriate age. Women seem to dominate this group of people in Nigeria. The concern of this paper, therefore, is to establish the urgent need for non-formal education especially for a developing nation. This study was conducted by collecting relevant secondary data from the National Policy on Education and the Federal Office of Statistics. The study also revealed a high level of awareness of non-formal education among the populace.Despite the awareness level, research evidence showed a higher percentage of illiterate adult females when compared with their male counterpart. There is therefore, need to intensify efforts especially at the grassroot level to enlighten the society on the gains of non-formal education.
