SOS Hermann Gmeiner School is regarded as the joining bridge between SOS Children's Village and local community. Out of the total 825 students at present , 675 students come from neighbouring community and 150 are SOS children. The fees charged at this school are quite nominal to compare with other private schools in Nepal. Depending upon the need and academic performance of the students attending from outside, educational scholarships are also provided by the school. It has, thus, enabled the neighbouring children to receive quality education in an ideal environment with reasonable amount of expenses. The SOS Children also get good opportunity at school to be mingled with their companions who come from their natural families. It is supposed to be a step ahead in the process of their integration.
