This paper aims at stressing the need to involve Adult non – formal education and informal training as a tool to educate and raise the level of awareness of illiterates on the issues of Difference and Diversity in Building the culture of Democracy and Attaining Sustainable livelihoods in Nigeria in particular and Africa in general. Specifically, adult educators were convinced that education for democracy must be the prime purpose in their activities and that all education for adults, whatever the subject matter or other purpose it might have, should, like liberal education, be animated by democracy ideals and contribute to education for democracy. Adult Non-Formal Education and Informal learning serve as transmitters of modern Culture, Religious institutions, old and new media, families and the Nation at large. There is no society that is static thus adult and non-formal education and informal learning has helped Nigeria as a country to educate illiterates to embrace democracy. It has further helped us to disagree with the politician who belief that money is everything in life.
