Justice for Widows and orphans project is saddened with the increasing number of abused children in the country.
Organisation Project Manager Felix Kunda says communities will be sensitized on the negative impacts of abusing children.
According to a report from Habitat for Humanity Zambia, children in Zambia are one of the groups at greatest risk to contract HIV.
Their vulnerability as children puts them at a greater risk of abuse, especially sexual abuse.
Statistics show that more than 1 in every 7 adults is living with HIV, which has resulted in about 600,000 children being orphaned due to AIDS.
