The phenomenon of street child hawking is an offshoot of complex interplay of various socio-economic and cultural factors, religious, cultural, linguistic and geographical diversity. The large-scale presence of street children is a symptom of social disease. Over the last five decades, the phenomenon of child hawking has become prominent globally with serious implication for the survival of the children. The presence of child hawkers in major cities of the world has transcended the level where it was viewed as a strictly worrisome uncommon occurrence and it is escalating and growing at an alarming rate worldwide. The global estimate of child hawkers has not only attracted public concern but has also become a matter of priority to Nigeria government as well as national and international organizations. In view of this background, this study analyzes the socio-economic effects of hawking among children in some selected motor parks within Kaduna Metropolis, a study of Kawo Motor Park, Mando Motor Park and Kanti Kwari Motor Park.
