About RRC:

Red Ribbon Club (RRC) Programme is a voluntary on-campus intervention, aimed at heightening the risk perception and preventing HIV among youth. Red Ribbon Clubs have become a powerful medium to reach out to young people. Red Ribbon Club  is envisaged to instill among all the students in the educational institutions values of service, develop healthy life styles, and increase availability of safe and adequate quantities of blood to all the needy. We also aim at harnessing the potentional of the youth by equipping them with correct information on mental health, substance abuse, nutrition and reproductive health: and building their capacities as peer educators in spreading message on positive health behavior in an enabling environment.

It was established 2009  in our college by the students under the guidance of teacher coordinators. The club is run by student volunteers and aims to serve various purposes like awareness against drug abuse, substance abuse, anti-AIDS campaign, inspires blood donation etc. Another chief purpose is the empowerment and overall development of youth.

RRC has more than 100 volunteers from 1st and 2nd Year students. All the volunteers are working for the noble cause of awareness among the rural and urban population about AIDS and other such disease that the society is facing, and promoting overall progressive health and wellness.
