Does that kind of assistance by the government may alleviate or ameliorate the dismal standard of their living? What do you think?

Anyway, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) or popularly known as Mormons has its own practical way of addressing their members who are poor and needy through their self-reliance program.

Seventy-four thousand two hundred eleven (74,21ich1) adult members of the Mormons belong to the poor and the needy category. Thirty-Seven percent (37%) of these or 38,197 were unemployed and thirty-three percent (33%) or 36,014 were underemployed.

The learners Information System (LIS) had different concerns and issues which need to be addressed appropriately and effectively so as  to have an accurate pupil's profile especially his name, Learner Reference Number (LRN), birthdate, date of school entrance, and other related info.

Facebook groups like Learner Information System Help Desk, EBEIs Help Desk, SFRT were created to provide the online users of some technical assistance. Yet every year the same haunting problems occurred.
