This study focused on the Women and Girl Child Centre at Gidan Haki Area, Sokoto which is one of the institutions that helps to facilitate the level and rate of women's contribution to the modern Nigerian economy. The centre provides formal training in basic literacy, post literacy, food and catering, knitting, tailoring, soap and pomade making and basket making to women and girl child. These are all aimed at librating women from the bondage of illiteracy and empowering them with adequate functional skills for their livelihood in order to solve the problem of street and girl child hawking by providing them with income so as to reduce the level of poverty in the state. Nevertheless one of the major center's problems is inadequate funding to run its activities. However, certain recommendations were given that are likely to help in solving the problems.
