Society of Friends from the Foundation PA VAN DER STEUR


The orphanage has existed since 1892. Here at Pa van der Steur, children without parents, or whose parents are very poor, are taken care of in a loving home. They are cared for, raised, educated, and prepared to face life in the Indonesian society.

Our headquarters of the Society of Friends of the Foundation Pa van der Steur is located in The Netherlands. The Society focuses on Johannes van der Steur’s work and his goals in providing support for the orphanage in Jakarta and Pondok Gede.

You can find the latest news, Bulletins, stories, Kumpulan and much more under the News heading.

If you are ever in Jakarta and you have time, please visit us at the orphanage in Pondok Gede. The children absolutely love visitors and we will welcome you with open arms. Please write us at to schedule a visit.
