Red Ribbon Club (RRC)

     



The Red Ribbon club was inaugurated in KKC COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY On March-2012.


BACKGROUND and RATIONALE


Red as a sign of warning is particularly relevant in the context of impressionable youth. At an age when sex is an adventure an exploration of intrinsic desire, the thought of danger is far faraway. Yet it is this group , defined by curiosity and boldness that is extremely vulnerable to AIDS. Youth is a nation‘s future. They are the trendsetters, the leading lights of every home and therefore very influential. Target them and you target the nation.
The Red Ribbon club (RRC) Program is a voluntary on – campus intervention, aimed at heightening risk perception and preventing HIV among youth. Red Ribbon Club have become a powerful medium to reach out to young people. Spearheaded by TAMIL NADU STATE AIDS CONTROL SOCIETY (TANSACS), it is supported by the Higher Education Department, with technical assistance from the Centers For Disease Control and prevention(CDC).
