From The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints website we read:
Elder John K. Carmack said that in six years the church's Perpetual Education Fund has made loans to 27,000 LDS students in 39 countries.

"The biggest problem is to have the machinery in place to be in contact with 27,000 people," he said. "That's about the size of BYU."

The fund is named and patterned after — and already has nearly outgrown — the Perpetual Emigration Fund, which helped 30,000 poor converts migrate from Europe to Utah in the 1850s and '60s. ...

The Perpetual Education Fund was created in 2001 to help church members ages 18-30 in select countries obtain education or skills training they otherwise couldn't afford and thereby get jobs that would help them "rise out of poverty and gain self-reliance," Carmack said.

The goal, he added, was to "raise up a generation of leaders with the time, energy and resources to build the church. They would marry, raise families and support them and in time, their tithing and resources would make these areas of the church self-sufficient."

Certainly, a worthy cause. We invite you to purchase this CD - Man of Honor: Gordon B. Hinckley, enrich the spirit in your home with this beautiful music while helping someone else to get that education they so richly deserve.
