NARSEE MONJEE COLLEGE OF COMMERCE AND ECONOMICS :
NARSEE MONJEE JUNIOR COLLEGE OF COMMERCE :

This is the first institution established in the name of Shri Narsee Monjee.

The college had a modest beginning in 1964 with an enrolment of just 173 students. In 1976 the Jr. College preparing students for Class XII examination and the Commerce stream was established. Besides the higher secondary and degree courses the college helps students to prepare for several professional courses like C.A., ICSI, etc., through its Extension Courses.

NARSEE MONJEE INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT STUDIES :
With the proliferation of industry and business in Bombay – a pressing need was created for facilities for Management Education. Recognizing this need Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal decided to start an institute for management studies. In 1980 our Trust decided to be the main donor for this institute. The institute is now popularly known as NMIMS.
The institute was established with the commitment to the goal of influencing the quality of Management in the growing organizations through the new breed of young managers who combine the use of technical skills with the understanding of the socio-cultural system in which they have to operate as harbingers of change.
Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies is amongst the nation’s prime educational and research institutions. With more than 5000 students spanning over 50 programs across 7 disciplines, NMIMS has transformed itself from Mumbai’s pride to become India’s most sought after academic community. Today, 28 years after its inception, NMIMS continues its tradition of training young minds and finding solutions to address tomorrow’s challenges.


KAMLA DHARAMSHI NARSEE SHRUTI SCHOOL FOR HEARING IMPAIRED :
Rotary Club of Bombay West started the project of Shruti School for the education of the deaf in a very modest way with just 9 students in 1973 at the Rotary Service Centre. With the financial support of our Trust the Rotary Public Charitable Trust constructed a unique modern building in the J.V.P.D. Scheme with well equipped classrooms to house the school which was then named as Kamala Dharamshi Narsee Shruti School in the sacred memory of Kamala, late wife of Shri Dharamshi Narsee. Highly personalized attention has been possible with the teacher : student ratio of 1:8. It imparts education in different languages viz. English, Hindi, Marathi and Gujarati. The three objectives of the school are the 3 Rs, i.e. to teach the hearing impaired, to Read, to Write, and to (Re) Habilitate. The Govt. of India has recognized the school for practical training programme of teachers for the Deaf. The school has on its staff 20 specially trained teachers for the deaf. It caters to the needs of 125 students. There as plans to double the number of students by developing the infrastructure needed.


JAMNABAI NARSEE PLAYGROUND:
Juhu Vile Parle Development Association’s – ‘Jamnabai Narsee Playground’, is located right in the centre of JVPD scheme and right opposite Jamnabai Narsee School. In December 2008, our trust was the main donor in facilitating the ‘Greening of the Playground’, and since then the playground has been named ‘Jamnabai Narsee Playground’.
We appreciate the efforts put in by Juhu Vile Parle Development Association for maintaining the playground on a regular basis. Narsee Monjee Educational Trust has from its inception stressed on the importance of open space and playground facility & in a densely populated city like Mumbai; it is of utmost importance to have a playground facility for the benefit of the whole community. Besides the school children, it is the community at large and all the neighborhood areas taking advantage of this ground as it is open to the public at large.


PUSHPA NARSEE PARK :
This plot was earmarked as a public park. It was handed over to Bombay Municipal Corporation to be developed as a Municipal Garden. Because of paucity of funds with B.M.C. this might have taken years, and the community would have been deprived of the park facility.
Shri Vishnuprasad bhai approached us for donation for this development. We agreed to the proposal for we firmly believe that a good public park plays an important role in any residential complex. With funding from our Trust and interest taken by the corporation it has grown into a beautiful park. It is the B.M.C. which manages the park, and it is for the community to be vigilant enough to see that it is maintained properly.
