Education is the foundation of peace.
WHO WE ARE
ALPHA Education is a non-profit and registered charity in Canada that promotes a critical-historical inquiry of World War II in Asia that contributes to peace and reconciliation.
Founded in 1997, ALPHA Education's mission is a commitment to humanity and global peace. This commitment is achieved through four strategic directions: engaging students and educators, empowering youth, supporting research, and connecting with communities.
ALPHA Education programs, events, and initiatives aim to develop the values of humanity, equity, and diversity. By representing and reflecting the human side of the history in our education work, contemporary issues such as racism, discrimination and hate, gender bias and violence, ethics and empathy, identity and belonging are explored.
We acknowledge the land we are working on is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.
ALPHA Education sees the significance of establishing a museum dedicated to educating the younger generations the values of humanity and peace, giving voice to the victims and survivors of WWII in Asia, remembering the atrocities committed so that they are not repeated. The Asia Pacific Peace Museum, located at the centre of Toronto, will be opened to the public by the end of 2023.
