Dar Al Majus

Community Home Dar Al Majus, The House of the three kings, was born as a space for meeting and concrete support. The main goal is to improve services to protect young people and women in a context like the one of Bethlehem Governorate, where the permanent state of conflict and the limited freedom of movement generate a precarious economic situation allied with a climate of social tension.

The project involves the creation of a space where each person will be welcomed and followed closely within the center, which will be subdivided into three areas of support: Listening and Support Area, Work Assistance Area, Cultural Center Area.

Terra Sancta Museum

A world class museum in the heart of the Old city of Jerusalem showcasing the archaeological and historical collections amassed by the Franciscan brotherhood over the last 800 years.

With parts of the collections only seen previously as part of the touring collection at The Metropolitan museum New York and the Palace of Versaille in Paris.
