Red Ribbon Club
The 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. Spearheaded by the Tamil Nadu State AIDS Control Society (TANSACS), with technical assistance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), USA, this programme is supported by the Department of Higher Education and Department of Technical Education. Through this programme the CDC demonstrates the importance of inter-sector collaboration to address the issue of HIV /AIDS.Young minds are impressionable and reaching out to the youth can effect behaviour change
To make AIDS free society, RRC was inaugurated by our college in 2006. Our Red Ribbon Club takes all efforts to enhance voluntary blood donation as well as mainstream HIV & AIDS prevention, care & support and treatment impact, mitigation among the students. It will also prepare and promote youth peer educators within and outside the campus.
Programmes organized by our RRC:
- Student's AIDS Awareness Programme under the head of RRC District Coordinator
- The club organizes camps on AIDS awareness at regular intervals in village areas through performing skit, showing video clips.
