Product/Service Summary

More than 15 million youth joins the workforce in India annually, but only 3 million find employment. Even those employed are often under-employed. Simultaneously, Ministry of Health estimates India has a shortfall of 6.4 million Allied Health workers. Skill Development was supposed to be the solution but suffers from being a high-touch model with distribution challenges and high vacancy rates, which makes it economically unviable to deliver good technical education to low-income students.

Virohan uses technology and process IP to solve this problem. We use a hybrid classroom with VR & Gamification to reach out to unemployed youth in remote areas & impart skills to them that lead to gainful employment. Our solution addresses the distribution challenge and standardizes the education at all centers making it scalable & profitable. We constantly analyze assessment outcomes. Classroom setting and integration of peer-learning concepts allows us to build the student’s character abilities.
