The college has a Red Ribbon Club formed under the aegis of the National Aids Control Plan – III (NACP). The club is formed to address the knowledge, attitude and behaviour of youth in the interrelated areas of both HIV/AIDS and sexuality, as demanded by their age, environment, and life style. Thus, Red Ribbon Club serves as a complementary and comprehensive prevention intervention to support and reinforce similar youth led initiatives.

                                                                                                                                                  Objectives of the Club

*  To reduce new HIV infection among the youth by raising their risk perception through proper education on sex and sexuality and HIV/AIDS by imparting new skills on communication, self-protection, negotiation, care and support and effective group interaction; and


*  To prepare the youth as peer educators and agents of change by developing their skills on leadership and team building.
