Javanna Productions provides artists with the resources, funding and platforms that are needed to produce socially responsible artistic films, shows, galleries, events and fundraisers. Annually, Javanna Productions presents a community driven effort entitled M.O.V.E. (Motivation Opportunity Vision Entertainment).

Since the inception of Javanna Productions M.O.V.E. in 2009, we have raised revenue and awareness for numerous social causes including Autism, Celiac Disease, Diabetes and anti-bullying. Additional initiatives include teen suicide prevention, education reform in Cambodia and Ghana, US education reform, solar power energy in Liberia, Myasthenia Gravis relief, LGBT and religious civil discussions and Cancer research. M.O.V.E has raised funds and awareness for a variety of larger non-profit organizations such as Autism Speaks, United World Schools, QSAC (Quality Services for the Autism Community), Children of Uganda, The Dan Marino Foundation, The Covenant House and Salvation Army.

MOVE FOR AUTISM PART 1 - OCTOBER 2009
M.O.V.E. (Season 5) 2014-2015
This season, members are working for a new M.O.V.E. effort entitled, “The Girls & Project”. In this effort we seek to provide students nation-wide with opportunities for education, sports, enrichment, performance, cultural learning and community building that will encourage and strengthen their spirits.
Javanna Productions has recently announced that members will dedicate the next five years to "The Girls & Boys Project”. The 1st Annual Inner Beauty Pageant is one of many events that is presented under “The Girls & Boys Project”. http://checkthis.com/rqle In the Inner Beauty Pageant M.O.V.E. will provide students nation-wide with mentors and opportunities in education, enrichment, performance, cultural learning and community building. This effort was designed to encourage and strengthen the spirits of youth from all communities. We especially seek to work in under served communities providing students with after school activities in the arts and community service. Check out the cool Vanna Ed. Membership offered to youth below.
While I was at Vanna Ed. Two different sets of adults came inside to inquire about the space. They were genuinely delighted to see a place where kids could go that promoted activities to keep kids in the positive. Any place where kids can grow, create, learn and prosper is a plus. I watched the kids while at Vanna Ed. and they all seemed really comfortable in the environment. As if they felt safe and found sanctuary away from home. In addition, Vanna Ed. has a diverse array of classes for its members. Spanish, math and creative writing, etc.

I think Vanna Ed is a great program for the young people that participate in it. From just a few hours of visiting I saw that it wasn’t a daycare, it was a constructive and educational program where the kids develop social skills, a sense of responsibility and have a space to come out of their shells. I think it’s awesome!
