We aim to provide our beneficiaries with the education and skills that will help them lead successful independent lives once they leave our care.  Once they reach 18 many continue into higher education or are keen to take up vocational training to establish help them take their place in society.


Healthcare is fast becoming one of India’s largest industries - both in terms of revenue and employment - with healthcare delivery, which includes hospitals, nursing homes and old age homes, constituting 65 per cent of the overall health market. Factor in the Indian medical tourism industry worth US$3 billion per year and it’s plain to see the need for skilled health professionals is rising dramatically.

How we help


Our Certificate in Bedside Assistance Nursing Training Course (CCBANC) delivers employability-focused training for healthcare assistants through a three-month programme. Located in our Rehabilitation Center, class-based learning is complemented with practical teaching in our on-site, 50-bed hospital, dedicated to the care of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA).


Not only are we able to train our own pool of bedside assistants to meet demand in our expanding health projects, we are also providing our beneficiaries the opportunity to maximise their employment prospects in an expanding sector. The course is also open to those from low socio-economic backgrounds and rural, tribal and at risk communities within our district.


The course covers the essentials in providing supportive care to medical professionals and patients: hygiene, patient psychology, body mapping, basic pharmacology and home remedies as well as practical training in bed making, personal and medical care, administering medication and dressings, monitoring of patients and handling medical equipment.

Graduates receive help in finding paid placements in health institutions, including our own hospital.

Who we help

Applications are open to those over 18 with at least an 8th standard pass. If you would like to find out more about the course please email cfhrc@snehalaya.org
