The orphanage Pa van der Steur exists since 1892. This is where children with no parents, or whose father and/or mother cannot take care of them, are being taken care of. They are being raised, educated and made ready for the Indonesian society.

The Society of Friends of the Orphanage Pa van der Steur is situated in the Netherlands. The Society focuses on the work of Johannes van der Steur and the goal is to support the orphaned and poor children in the houses of Pa van der Steur in Jakarta and Pondok Gede.
