Our Mission

NEET is a non-profit organization based in Jamaica. NEET launched in 2003 by entrepreneur Winston Wellington who witnessed what the lack of access to educational resources was doing to his home country, Jamaica. Starting in the garage of his New York home, Wellington would collect book and computer donations from friends and neighbors and ship them to Jamaica through our friends at Dennis Shipping, who graciously ship our books and computers free of cost. Since then we’ve built 17 libraries around the country and provided books and computers for each.

Today, NEET is committed to strengthening the social fabric of Jamaica through programs that expand educational access for children and adults, partnerships that address our public and environmental health, and events and activities that celebrate Jamaica’s rich heritage.

Our Vision

A tablet in every child’s hand a computer in every classroom. This is our theme and our goal. We aim to provide educational resources to underprivileged youth in Jamaica. We believe by doing this we can reduce crime in the country and ultimately provide opportunities for kids to achieve their dreams. There are many children who with a helping hand can go on to become the stars they were born to be.
