Youth Red Cross/Red Ribbon

The YRC is the most important constituent of its mother organization, Indian Red Cross. It is a student movement organized for students in Colleges and Technical Institutions.

YRC in our College was operational from the academic year 2011-12. Through YRC our college aims to inspire, encourage and initiate all sort of humanitarian activities so that human suffering be minimized, alleviated and even prevented and thus contributes to creating a more congenial climate for peace. It is a non-religious, non- political and non sectarian International body. Regardless of either frontiers or race, the Red Cross remains a voluntary organization and also an independent one having considerable welfare activities to its credit.

The Red Cross, established in 1863 in Geneva, by Jean Henry Dunant, is an International Organization meant for humanitarian services. Its headquarters is in Geneva, Switzerland with many affiliated National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. On 7th June 1920, fifty members were formally nominated to constitute the Indian Red Cross Society and the first Managing Body was elected from among them with Sir Malcolm Hailey as Chairman. Indian Red Cross Society is a member of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. Relations between the IRCS and the India Delegation of the Federation are strong.
