The challenge

Half of the population in India is under the age of 25 and over 15 million people apply to join the workforce annually. However, over 80% remain unemployed or underemployed every year due to a skill and job creation gap. The healthcare sector is particularly suffering from this lack of trained professionals, with a current requirement for allied health professionals of 6.5 million people and a supply of less than 300,000 people.

The innovation

Virohan tackles the skills gap in the healthcare sector by offering vocational training and skilling for BoP youth to become qualified, allied healthcare professionals or paramedics in India. Trainings are carried out through on-site trainers and a sophisticated tech platform. Virohan also links students in top urban hospitals in India for on-the-job training and has a 92% placement rate for full-time jobs.

The impact

Virohan charges a fee per student for the vocational training and skilling courses. The business has partnered with the Indian Government and corporates to fund the tuition of the majority of its students, allowing BoP youth to participate in the courses regardless of their payment capacity.
