A non-governmental organization that fights for the rights of children, Eye of the Child, has disclosed plans of setting up clubs in schools in an attempt to address sexual abuse.
In his recent annual report Inspector General of the Malawi Police Lexten Kachama said despite registering a reduction in crime rate, sexual abuse cases have been on the increase in the country.
In an interview with Newsline, Executive Director for Eye of the Child, Maxwell Matewere said through the initiative, learners will be imparted with knowledge on how they can prevent themselves from abuse.
The organization is also set to involve traditional leaders and faith group leaders in its effort to fight sexual abuse.
