SOS Hermann Gmeiner Primary School Rawalakot

After assessing the need of another facility in AJK, the Government of Azad Jammu and Kashmir was requested for the allocation of land in Rawalakot for the establishment of SOS complex, consisting of an SOS Children’s Village, SOS Youth Home, and community schools.

The construction of SOS Primary School commenced in 2013 and finished in early 2015. The school started functioning in 2015, with classes from nursery up to class 6th. The current strength of the school is over 200 students from the adjoining community. Construction cost for the school was sponsored by HSBC.

SOS Youth Home Rawalakot

Youth Homes are opened wherever we have SOS Children’s Villages and boys are shifted there upon reaching adolescence. Those with merit receive higher education, otherwise technical training. They do not leave our care till such time as they are able to earn their livelihood.

The construction of SOS Youth Home began in early 2013 and completed by the end of 2014 with a capacity to care for 40 young boys. This facility is being equipped with furniture and appliances and will be functional soon as a temporary SOS Children’s Village Rawalakot.
