Also with the help of different university recognised organisations such as Chembur Welfare School, Vinay High School, Bhoiwada School Kurla, the Ruia NSS unit carries out educational programmes. Different government organisations such as The State Disaster Management, Mumbai District Aids Control Society and Mumbai University work in association with ruia NSS in order to inculcate an all-round development programmes through various activities such as Blood Donation and Awareness workshops.
