Students of young age group are the most active donor population all over the world. This study targeted awareness of young age group and their willingness for blood donation. A questionnaire based survey was conducted with 500 students by cluster sampling design. Only 16.5% individuals were past donors. 84.5% mentioned willingness to donate in future among the group of non donors. We concluded that act of blood donation and attitude of students is related with the education given by their parents. On the other hand we find out that the positive responses for the future blood donation were mostly from the male students. Other factors participating are awareness, mental approach and fears.
