Kayitare Steven and Shema Blaise noted that the main goals of the foundation are to help children from impoverished families connect with the world. "Our primary focus is education. We aim for these children to attend good schools, supported by sponsors who will care for them. Dancing, singing, and other activities are not only enjoyable but also improve their lives. We hope that one day we will have our own school (Moriox School), which will support more talented children."

The foundation’s name carries a message. The founders have explained its meaning for the Armenian followers:

M (mighty) stands for strength, your inner power;

O (objective) signifies being objective, always impartial;

R (rich)- being rich in love;

I (intellect) represents your high capacity for knowledge;

O (openness) symbolizes openness, it is refreshing;

X, reflects the mysterious side of a person.

“Armenian songs are pleasant, very rhythmic, which makes us deepen our love towards them. And the warmth and love of the Armenians towards us made us feel that Armenia is our home. Armenian artists are always thrilled to see our dances to their songs. We cannot describe the love we have for Armenian music merely with words. We are grateful for the love we have received from Armenia, which gives us wings and the motivation to strive for improvement. We hope to have the opportunity to visit Armenia one day and meet its people," the founders conveyed the wishes of the children of the group.
