Families who are concerned about their livelihood, employment and basic necessities, as well as families who have been paralyzed by illness, who have been reduced to poverty, and whose children are working on the streets. If the cultural aspects and necessary education for families are not provided scientifically, the family in poverty will find a solution to the problem of exploiting their child; Child labor on the street continues.
