They also run professional training schools that offer classes in management and information technology. They are known for their humanitarian work with refugees and people in need, and their dedication to peace. The building is a modern complex, designed to be bright and uplifting. Enter through the large, brass doors that lead inside, and look up to see the domed ceiling decorated with reliefs and murals.
