The study was aimed at evaluating community participation in UNICEF assisted adult and non-formal education literacy programmes in South East zone of Nigeria. Seven research questions and three null hypotheses were formulated. The study was a descriptive survey involving one hundred and sixty seven UNICEF- assisted adult and non-formal education literacy centers in five states of South East Nigeria. Data were collected through the use of questionnaire. The section for head facilitators was checklist structured on provision and non provision of teaching and learning materials, teaching and learning facilities. The section for village education committee (VEC) was on provision of teaching and learning facilities. The section for facilitators was on community participation and on four point scale that ranged from very high extent to very low extent. Percentages and mean scores were used in answering the research questions. The z-test was used in testing the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The findings indicated that communities participate to a low extent on the sustainability and ownership of UNICEF assisted adult and non-formal education literacy programmes. It was also found out that there was no significant difference in the participation of urban and rural community members in UNICEF assisted adult and non- formal education literacy programmes. It was thus recommended among others that; donors should carry out needs assessment before intervention in communities, there should be continued advocacy, sensitization and mobilization of learners for ownership and sustainability of programmes; stakeholders should advocate for improved funding of the adult and non- formal education sub-sector by government and public-private partnership in adult and non-formal education basic and post literacy delivery.
