Youth Red Cross and Red Ribbon Club

The Indian Red Cross is a voluntary humanitarian organization having a network of over 1100 branches throughout the country, providing relief in times of disasters/emergencies and promoting health and care of the vulnerable people and communities. The Mission of the Indian Red Cross inspires and encourages all forms of humanitarian activities.

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. RRC empowers students in the age group of 17-25, by giving them information and life-skills to protect themselves from HIV/AIDS and changing the most active among them into peer educators. This club transforms students into change agents empowered with leadership, negotiation and team building skills.
