July News

I send you a heart-felt greeting on behalf of us at LISI. Today, we would like to thank you for your love
for education, especially in these times where the COVID-19 pandemic has presented many tough tests
for our institute. This letter will highlight our achievements and challenges of these recent weeks.

Our 669 students, who are part of our educational community, have completed the school year. The
challenge for our institute was to continue educating the young people who don’t have internet access
in their homes. The pandemic brought additional difficulties to the lives of our students, namely parents
becoming unemployment, minimal space and privacy in their homes to work, scarcity of resources, and
isolation. In one way or another, these factors hindered the performances of many of our students.

Despite our recent trials, we gladly share the following achievements:
1. 183 students graduated from our three middle schools
2. 70 students graduated from our high school
3. We continued offering personalized online tutoring during the times of the pandemic

This year of challenges doubles as a period of blessings as well. We have completed our admission
process for the next school year which will begin in August. We have 715 students enrolled. It is an
honor for us to be able to positively impact our communities by helping to reduce the rate of school
drop outs.

Nevertheless, our financial standing is still badly damaged. Last month, our teachers and administrators
continued to work at only 75% of their salary. That involved a great sacrifice on their part. In addition,
our source of income decreased to nearly 50% of its capacity because many of our benefactors and
strategic allies were unable to continue to help.

Our challenge for the new school year is to further diversify our sources of income, especially monthly
scholarships.

Thank you very much for your love for our institute and for being our ally in our campaign for education.
