The Drop-in Center PAHCHAAN, which works for the welfare of street children, collaborated in the study, which was conducted in Nandi Pur Town and the surrounding area. By using convenience-based non-probability selection, the regions with the largest proportion of street children were chosen as a sample.

Therefore, it is advised that parents' financial situation be improved through various income support programs, a campaign should be launched to raise awareness of children's rights, in which the media and NGOs should play a significant role, and most importantly, the laws about child protection issues should be rigidly followed.
