CSR demonstrates that business takes an interest in wider social issues, rather than just those that impact your profit margins, which will attract customers who share the same values. Therefore, it makes good business sense to operate sustainably. It is a way through which a company achieves a balance of economic, environmental, and social imperatives, while at the same time addressing the expectations of shareholders and stakeholders.

HSSC being a not-for-profit organization, is an implementation partner with 500+ affiliated training centres across India in the skilling ecosystem. HSSC implements the CSR projects in below mentioned areas with respect to Healthcare, Wellness, and AYUSH sector.

As per the National Policy for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship 2015, organizations can implement their CSR projects through Sector Skill Council


To attract funds from industry, companies will be encouraged to spend at least 25% of there Corporate Social Responsbility (CSR) funds on skill development initiatives directly or through NSDF. Further, industry should earmark at least 2% of its payroll bill (including for contract labour) for skill development initiatives in their respective sectors. These funds can be channelized for skill development activities either through respective SSCs or through NSDF.

As per the circular of Ministry of Corporate Affairs dated 12.2.2016, CSR funds can be used for training and stipend under Apprenticeship Act 1961, while abiding by the mandate of engaging 2.5 % - 15% apprentices with the total manpower.


There should be 2.5 doctors per 1,000 people as per the World Health Organization. Reducing this gap is a time taking process. The challenge can be addressed appropriately by enhancing the capacity of existing training centres, supplying skilled manpower as per the industry requirement with short term courses, vocational trainings, etc. HSSC courses are a suitable option to overcome this situation.

Livelihood Programmes

The intent is to focus on the youth who need support as well as guidance to earn their livelihoods. HSSC courses can make the trainees employable and transform their lives which enables them to secure a suitable livelihood and a progressive career path.

According to the World Trade Organization, the GDP level can increase up to 3% - 5% in 2035, if India focuses on skill development and training. There is a great need for India to train and skill the youth for the overall development of the country.

Water, Sanitation & Hygiene

Providing adequate water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) is an essential part of basic health services in healthcare organizations. WASH helps in preventing the spread of infectious diseases as well as protecting staff and patients.
