The campaign will be conducted under three separate programmes. The first programme ‘Red Flamboyant Soldiers for Children’ will organise a number of activities to take care of needy children in the city.
The second programme ‘Red Flamboyant Soldiers for Traffic Safety’ will organise activities such as raising traffic safety awareness and the third programme ‘Red Flamboyant Soldiers for Training’ will provide training to students in various skills, gender knowledge, and set a forum to prevent violence in schools.
