Pochangemotion is focused on the development of the youth. With regards to this, it aims to correct the mistakes our predecessors and we the present generation have done that have brought untold burdens on us, impeding our progress. Areas for this correction include: marriage, courtship, life, religion, and all social related issues.

WCS is also a registered NGO that seeks to educate and empower women globally on legal, political, educational and financial/business fields of life. The target people for this NGO are women because women have been deprived of freedoms and education for some decades that have generated a great hole of economic breakdown in the world. She believes that if women are adequately nurtured on these 4 areas of WCS, the world will change for the better.

WOCON(World Concerns) is another project she is embarking on and the aim is to protect and prevent the entire world against present and future pandemic crises. Areas for focus include: land, environment, animals, water and all related environmental objects.

The reason is that since there is a relationship between mankind and the environment, there is a high possibility of getting affected if the environment is destroyed. The best solution for this is to find means to protect ourselves by protecting the environment.
