What We Do
Join as a volunteer at one of our project destinations! We dispatch volunteers twice a year in winter and summer.
During the semester, we organise multiple events which range from our fundraising tombola to our fun internal events for our active members.
Building A Community
We connect ambitious students that want to enable social change all over the world.
You can be a part of what PIECES is doing and can become an agent for social change!
What is PIECES?
Low school enrolment rates, lack of educational opportunities and poor career prospects characterize the situation in most developing and emerging countries. In times of globalisation, knowledge of the English language is becoming increasingly relevant and useful.
PIECES is a student organization from the University of St. Gallen that improves the access to education for children and young adults by organizing projects and teaching English at its partnerschools around the globe. Further initiatives such as building class rooms, providing a sustainable lunch program or distributing project-specific textbooks to the students support the organisation’s vision of fostering education possibilities and personal growth worldwide.

We work together with 5 schools in Brazil, Colombia, Mongolia, Thailand and Zambia where we send volunteers twice a year. Not all projects may take place based on local circumstances.
