About National Economic Education Trust
National Economic Education Trust (NEET) was established in the early 1990s to support the educational development of qualified youth from the disadvantaged community. The trust gives emphasis to math and science learners. It started with an initial grant of R30 Million Rand from the government. NEET also provides on-going assistance on the duration of the studies through their Student Management Portal, which facilitates internships and job opportunities whenever possible.
