Every young person deserves to succeed. Neetzotz exists to make that happen.
By identifying gaps in the system and creating practical, sustainable solutions, Neetzotz gives young people the tools and confidence for long-term success, preventing fallout — and failure.A trailblazing operation. A launchpad for success.
Success starts here
Not all young people are created equal. But the mainstream mass-education system is.
Bound to a specific syllabus, schools focus on academic achievement. This often leaves weaker students falling through the cracks, their social or emotional issues left untreated — and harder to reverse.
Not about to take chances on the community’s children, Neetzotz took note — and took action.
Serving 700+ children between the ages of 8-20 — and their parents and staff — we run a rich array of education and extracurricular programmes, helping young people develop skills, confidence and resilience, and granting them the best chance at success.

happy children, happy parents
My son used to linger on the streets, messing around with friends. Thanks to Neetzotz, he doesn’t have time for that anymore, They’re professional, organized, and he comes home feeling accomplished and happy.
During Covid, our bedtime routine fell apart. When Neetzotz’ phone line was introduced, it gave us back that structure. The kids will be playing outside and come 7:30, they’ll run inside to get into pyjamas and dial the line. They absolutely love it. It’s keeping kids and parents happy.”
“We don’t like our kids biking around the streets. Our streets aren’t safe. But there’s a limit to how much we can give them at home. Neetzotz is a very structured programme where they learn, play and interact with each other in a supervised, caring and fun environment. It’s a real help.”
young people, big impact

Jerry was an impulsive, immature and often antisocial ten year old. Given his domestic situation, it was hardly a surprise. He had a lot on his shoulders — and it was there to stay.
But Neetzotz exists to help children emotionally…
Fred came to Neetzotz with severely low self-esteem. It was hampering his social integration — and it needed no explanation. At twelve, Fred was obese. He couldn’t keep up with his peers even if he tried.
