Red Ribbon

This club is a voluntary on-campus intervention programme for students of the college. The main objective is to reduce new HIV infection among the youth by raising their risk perception primarily through seminars that sensitize the students and the teachers on Sex, Sexuality and HIV/AIDS. A related aim is to induce the youth to help and support people living with HIV/AIDS. It also encourages and promotes voluntary non-remunerated blood donation among the youth.

Towards these ends, the members of the club organize awareness programme with GOs and participate in advocacy programmes with NGOs. They have participated in the Government organized International Youth Day, World Blood Donation Day and in state level essay competitions relating to Voluntary Blood Donation, in the state level slogan competitions on National Voluntary Blood Donation and also in a Rock Reach Concert organized by NSACS.

Action plans for the coming session will include Blood Donation camps in order to motivate the students into realizing the vitality of donating blood as a means of showing social commitment, campaigns against tobacco addiction to awaken the students to the fatal consequences of addiction, Quiz and Essay competitions, Seminars and Street plays to further the process of grooming the students into realizing the goals and objective of the Red Ribbon Club.
