To Reach Peace …Teach Peace!


Ali Ismaeel Abbas

There are 30 wars in the world today,

2,000,000 children have died in the past decade, 5,000,000 disabled and 12,000,000 homeless.  Every day 35,615 children die of hunger. Every day over 2,300 children disappear in North America (Missing, Abducted, Runaway, and Thrownaway).

We must act now to build a better future for our children.


The Canadian Peace Education Foundation for a World Fit For Children (“CPEF”) purpose is to raise funds for education for building peace, and to consider results-oriented peacebuilding educational projects at home and abroad.  Our ultimate goal is to significantly reduce the human cost of violence against children and others, through:

1.increasing peace awareness and knowledge of alternatives to violence;

2.increasing donations of money and volunteerism for peace education;

3.increasing information resources for peace education (eg. Books, articles, videos, etc.);

4.increasing social educational programming (eg. Government initiatives, corporate initiatives, school initiatives, etc.)


The nature of programs to be funded includes:

As a result, CPEF will have a key leadership role in promoting peace through education in Canada and around the world.

ONLY $1.00

If you agree with the need for peace education, please invest $1.00 or whatever you can afford.  If we raise $1.00 from every man, woman and child in Canada annually for peace education then we will have some $30,000,000 to reinvest in people to significantly reduce the human cost of violence.  We will ask corporations, governments and other organizations to also step up to the challenge - possibly by matching $1.00 for each dollar raised by their families.

The Canadian Peace Education Foundation will be governed by a volunteer working Board of renowned peacebuilders.  Annual audited reports will be available


CPEF is non-political and non-religious.  We are committed to a business-like approach, results-oriented programming, and minimizing administration overheads to ensure the maximum amount of donations will be used for education for peace and a better future for the children of the world.
