Inside the facility, technicians were hard at work on restoration projects, mostly Qurans. The restoration of the building and the training of staff for the facility was a project of the Jordanian waqf or charitable trust that administers all of al Haram al-Sharif, in collaboration with UNESCO, and the staff are now waqf employees. A core group of restorers trained in Italy for three years and returned to form the nucleus of the technical group at al-Ashrafiya.
