RED RIBBON

RED RIBBON:

Red Ribbon Club was established in Govt. Champhai College on 17.8.2006. At the initial stage, Asst. Prof. C. Laldawngliana was appointed as Nodal Officer. He took this charge from 2006-2008 but as he had gone for study leave, the charge was given to Asst. Prof. Jennifer Saizamliani. But she too, had left the College due to her transfer to Aizawl, the charge of Nodal Officer is taken up by Asso. Prof. C. Lalnunpuii till date.

 

All the students of the College are members in the Red Ribbon Club. Out of these students, two or three students are selected as Peer Educator from each class. These Peer Educators are sent to Aizawl for training, and they pass on to their fellow students whatever they learnt out of their training through Power Point Presentation. They put a lot of efforts in every possible way to uplift the main aim of Red Ribbon Club—HIV/AIDS awareness campaign and Blood Donation. They go out to neighbouring villages and distribute AIDS awareness booklet, they also put up posters and distribute condoms to prevent the wide spreading of AIDS.

 

Using HIV/AIDS as the theme, the Red Ribbon Club used to organise a Debate and Essay Writing competition during College Week and they used to prepare a handsome prize for this.
