Red Ribbon Clubs- A Concept

Red Ribbon Club is a platform where skill and knowledge building sessions are conducted for the youth population. Through RRC, youth are encouraged to learn about safe and healthy lifestyles. The strategy is to promote health seeking behaviour and voluntary blood donation as well as enable them to become change agents in HIV & AIDS prevention programmes in the state.


Symbol of RRC

  • Red like Love, as a symbol of passion and tolerance for those affected.
  • Red like Blood, representing the pain caused by many people who have AIDS.
  • Red like the anger about the helplessness about which we are facing for a disease for which there is still no cure.
  • Red is a sign of warning not to carelessly ignore one of the biggest problems of our time.
