Community and religious attitudes Community attitudes within Indonesia toward panti asuhan have not been researched in depth. It appears clear that panti asuhan play a role in Islamic religious observance for some sections of Indonesian society, but the precise nature and extent of this phenomenon is unclear.
Knowledge gaps Considerable scope exists to examine contemporary social, community and religious attitudes about panti asuhan. Areas for further research include the role played by charitable giving to panti asuhan in the context of Islamic religious observance, changing community perceptions about orphanages, and the role of philanthropy in support of panti asuhan.
