North East Education Trust (NEET)

About NEET

North East Educational Trust (NEET) established in 2009 is an NGO registered as a public charitable trust in Assam, Guwahati. NEET works with the mission of creating educational cultures that nourish autonomous, creative, and critical thinkers.

What: The main objective of North East Educational Trust is to enable children to be independent critical thinkers.

Why: NEET works to enable children to be independent critical thinkers so that they become rational autonomous individuals who make meaningful contributions both at an individual and societal level in all aspects of life- be it economic, social, or political.

How: To reach its objective, NEET:

  1. NEET’s community library cum learning center: NEET’s community library cum learning center is a space for children to work with their heads, hearts, and hands. Along with holding regular library sessions and organizing activities related to art, craft, dance, music, and theatre we provide academic support to the regular children that come to our library.
  2. Language learning program in government schools: This year we changed the strategy of our language learning program in schools to a teacher support program on teaching language by providing support to teachers in teaching children. We work with 17 government schools, both Primary and High School, in 3 clusters of Kamrup(M) district.
  3. Capacity Enhancement program with teachers: We provide support to teachers of both government and private schools and grassroots organizations on teaching language and setting up vibrant libraries through workshops, mentorship programs, and exposure visits.
  4. Development of curricular resources: We have developed teacher guiding documents, manuals, TLMs, and bilingual picture books based on SCERT Textbooks to support teachers in teaching language.
  5. NEET’s ECCE program: Our ECCE program is a child-centered, balanced play and activity-based program catering to individual children’s learning and emotional needs. It is a school readiness program that works on children’s five developmental domains.
  6. Anubhav- a learning center: We opened Anubhav, NEET’s learning center in Sonaipam at Sonitpur district on 25th March 2023.


NEET’s primary location of work is Guwahati in Kamrup Dist Assam.
