Focus Productions is a company dedicated in lending a helping hand wherever we can and have become partners in various international and local community projects.
Focus Productions has a strong connection with a number of villages in India – supporting many communities and orphanages including 34 children in Hyderabad. Our ongoing Hyderabad Orphanage Project enables these children to access good food, clean water, shelter, and education.
Hyderabad is commonly referred to as the City of Pearls. However, with over 540,000 people living below the poverty line, the city is characterized by a significant presence of slum settlements.
In recent months, the Focus Productions team connected a local school to a slum feeding program; the school had an excess of brand new uniforms that were distributed to these children in need. The focus of this project was to give children an opportunity to make a valuable difference in their community.
We put our design, fabrication, and building skills to considerable use in the past two years for The Housing Project. Our team has helped build 81 brick houses with electricity for villagers that were squatting in “make-shift” house constructions. Now these homes can be positively passed down to the next generation – the makings of a positive tomorrow.
Focus Productions also financially supports the growth of local businesses in India. Much like our local community projects, we provide opportunities in mentoring, and open doors for urban youth.
These funds go towards purchasing new equipment, hiring and training staff, and meeting the growing demand of their markets. One of our most recent efforts was with a local business that make candles. In India candles are vitally needed as the power often goes out.
Focus Productions are of our contributions with 10% of all profits from our business going towards the projects to ensure we can continue supporting these communities. Therefore, when you use our services, you are helping us do what we do.
