Media24 has donated 100 scientific calculators to needy Grade 9 learners in Cape's townships who are tutored by University of the Western Cape students.

Lonwabo Damane spoke to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies on Monday explaining an initiative under the NPO Today 4 Tomorrow in which they provide mentorship, career guidance and counseling for Grade 9 learners in township schools.
