Confident Group - Touching Lives
Confident Group has always believed in the power of business to bring in positive change in society. Collaborating with NGOs, civic bodies and governments Confident Group has taken many proactive measures in health, education, women empowerment, housing, and many other initiatives.
In 2011, a charity organization contacted the Managing Director, T A Joseph to help with the treatment of a 2-year-old child diagnosed with cancer. The medical cost that was needed to treat the child came up to 6.5 lakhs, though the organization took care of all the costs this urged the management to think for a sustainable model that can be of help to the poor and needy cancer patients who are struggling to meet the cost of expensive cancer medicines and thus this dream initiative of Confident Group took flight, this sustainable model of medical store will be a great support for poor and needy patients !!
This dream project Prarthana Cancer Care Medicines became a reality on 4th February, the world cancer day the dream project.
Confident’s charity wing ‘helping hands’ in association with Butterfly Foundation which is run by Oncologists, doctors, scientists, and medical students has started this initiative, The Butterfly Foundation is a charitable organization mainly focusing on cancer affected families and their children’s education.
Since 2017 Confident group has supported The Butterfly Foundation and that relationship lead to the launch of this noble initiative. While the Butterfly Foundation is taking care of the management of this initiative, the Confidant group shall take care of the financial needs of the initiative. The core idea of the pharmacy is to provide high-quality medicines at up to 90 percent subsidized rates to support financially weak cancer victims, this was made possible by acquiring medicines directly from wholesale dealers and then selling it on just 2% margin, which is taken to just run the pharmacy's day to day activities. In the coming future, the initiative plans to procure medicines directly from manufacturers which shall bring down the prices of the medicines even further.

Apart from ‘Prarthana Cancer Care Medicines’, Confident Group has reached out to various initiatives to help the people who needed it the most. At the time when the whole of Kerala was facing the hardships of the flood, the Confident group promised a total of 50 houses for people who were the worst affected, and to date, the group has delivered 40 houses. Confident Group has donated over 10 dialysis machines across Kerala to different hospitals and clinics where all the maintenance costs of the machines are taken care of by the group, thus enabling subsidized dialysis rates for the less fortunate in our society.
The group also donates a fixed amount on a monthly basis to all these hospitals and agencies that enable the financially backward patients to have subsidized costs for dialysis treatment. Apart from all these Confident Group has been a major sponsor for many specially-abled schools, orphanages, etc. They have also been the major partner in ‘House Challenge Charitable Trust’ which provides homes for children who are in homeless families, and to date, they have handed over homes to 125 families. The organization has always believed that any business should be people-centric and strive to build a better future for the coming generations
