Durban, South Africa – Presto, a youth-owned business, has an app which provides access to study guides written by the top performing students in South Africa. To celebrate Youth Day, for two days only, Presto is giving away their study hacks guide for free (worth R100) to all learners in South Africa.
This book is packed with the best study strategies by the top performing students in South Africa, including a Rhodes Scholar and a learner who came first for Matric in 2012.
“We believe that this guide can improve the marks for all learners in SA”, says Shivad Singh, the 24-year-old founder and CEO of Presto, a youth-owned business.
Youth day commemorates the role of the youth who fought against the Apartheid regime. Just like how the Soweto Uprising laid the grounds for the release of Nelson Mandela and the end of the Apartheid Era, we hope that by Presto giving their study hacks book to all South African learners for free, it will pave the way for an improvement in learners’ marks, leading to a rise in the standards of education across the country.
This campaign is one of the first steps in Presto’s mission to improve education in South Africa. “Every child has the capacity to be a genius”, says Singh. “We want to unlock that potential in as many learners as possible in South Africa and then the rest of Africa.”
To access the study hacks books, simply download the Presto Books app by searching “Presto Books” in the app store. Once the app is downloaded, click on “Study Hacks” book to get your free guide for you or your child.
