This is the identification and the examining of vulnerable children. This process involves identifying the target area such the slums and streets where the youths are. Reasons for their being in the streets are identified, including the problems they face daily and the lifestyle they currently lead and desire to lead. This process is important as it helps in identification of children who are in need and offering services that are appropriate for them. It also forms a basis for crafting an 'out of the street' formula for the child.
