The research study primarily deals with the problems experiencing by children in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) province. Qualitative research method was employed in this research. The universe of the study was the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Semi-structured interviews with 60 respondents were held during the research study. The study presents primary and secondary data to examine the present situation of children in KPK. The study explored incest, swara, neglect, child labor as issues facing by the children in the KPK. Children encounter ill-treatment at home, at the hand of State, in their community and even in Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and they are devoid of basic opportunities of lives in these settings. This study establishes the importance of raising awareness among relevant agencies, government decision makers, NGOs and the wider community about the impacts of violation of children rights and the types of actions that each can take to mitigate social impacts.
