About Kochouseph Chittilappilly
Chairman, K Chittilappilly Foundation
“Determination and hard work has helped me to succeed in all my endeavours and KCF is
a platform for me to give back to society from where I've received…"
For what I am today and whatever I have earned during the last 39 years of entrepreneurship and as a Business
man, I owe a lot the society. And therefore, I feel it’s my humble obligation to give back to society and to the
needy people a rightful share of it.
This realisation prompted me to initiate various humanitarian activities for the welfare of poor people and
for the care of the aged and the deserted by starting oldage homes for women, homes for the poor girls, in
addition to extending financial support to the sick and forthose undergoing treatment for terminal diseases.
Later, the need for consolidating all these activities under one umbrella was felt, for better planning
and execution of these projects. The K Chittilappilly Foundation (KCF), a registered non-profit charitable
trust, established in 2012, was borne out of this conviction.
Today KCF acts as the launch pad for all my public charitable activities. Having kept myself away from the
day-to-day business activities of V-guard group of companies, I could devote more time to engage in
charitable and social welfare activities, which helped to reinforce my strong belief that “Giving back is among the
most important and valuable things an entrepreneur can do to society”.
I am greatly delighted that during this short period of time, KCF has been able to reach out to a good number
of people belonging to the poor and marginalised categories, in various ways, primarily in the areas of
providing financial support for treatment of individual patients below poverty line, suffering from various
diseases that require prolonged treatment, support for the education of children of BPL families and also
promoting the noble message of after-death organ donation through campaigns as well as by holding
functions to appreciate the families of after-death organ donor.
A major share of such initiatives has been carried out with the help of other credible charitable agencies and
NGO's who have been in the field of social work for many years. Associating with such agencies have helped us to
reach out to the needy at the grass root level, which is not otherwise possible for KCF alone to do.I cherish and
hold close to my heart the good deeds which KCF has been able to do so far and commit myself to continue
efforts in this direction for the benefit of the society and for the well being of the people.
Giving back becomes meaningful, only when nothing in return is expected - benefits, recognition, tangible or
otherwise. Your biggest and sole reward is the realisation that you’ve made a significant change in someone’s life.
And if not ‘significant’ then a positive change nevertheless!
Director, K Chittilappilly Foundation
K Chittilappilly Foundation is really getting into shape with lots of social activities and
I am sure we can do a lot of good to the society. Moreover it imparts a good
message to each one of us, that we have no choice but GIVE BACK TO THE
WORLD. V STAR also has started taking up some CSR activities. I am happy that
since we started doing this, the V star family members are also actively involving in
the activities. It was really an eye opener when we visited the schools in Agali, near
Attappadi. How a section of the society are deprived of all the facilities and how
these poor people are being exploited by the intruders. I wish KCF all the best in all
its endeavours, along with the best leader who is the motivation and model.
