LabourNet Services has up-skilled the unemployed, re-skilled the underemployed, and used microentrepreneurship to impact 13 million livelihoods. The organization has opened paths to opportunities in the formal economy by creating access to quality learning infrastructure and content, mentoring and a helping hand for its communities.

It has also created equitable access to healthcare and addressed shortfalls in the readiness, availability and distribution of health workers, impacting millions of beneficiaries.

COVID-19 Response

LabourNet's COVID-19 response has worked to reduce the load on community health centres, primary health centres, and sub-centres by ensuring optimal staffing with trained personnel. It has also improved triage at the rural level by providing community health workers like ASHAs (accredited social health activists) with support, entrepreneurial enablement and a long-term helping hand.

To ensure inclusive vaccine access, the organization has maximized local capacity to immunize citizens by training personnel in the various roles required at vaccination camps.

LabourNet's efforts are aimed at building local health capacity and improving all levels of India's health infrastructure. We're helping healthcare institutions fight COVID-19 and to be prepared for the third wave, working to boost immunization rates and building strengths that will help health systems stay resilient in the face of future crises.
