Pia Meier, Mama Pia is married to Alfred Meier. They both lived in Fuerigen Switzerland. Mama Pia had visited Enugu Nigeria in 2009.
She decided to support the development process in Nigeria through the provision of sustainable education. Mama Pia's entire life was driven by fear of God, love of neighbor, modesty and sacrifice for the good of the other. Like Jesus the Christ, she died that others may live. Like Him, she lives. During her visit to Enugu, Nigeria, Mama Pia saw an opportunity to sacrifice and she went ahead to donate all her entire life earnings to found and fund two foundations.

The Fredypia Development and Education Foundation in Enugu and Die Pia und Alfred Meier Knuesel Stiftung in Switzerland. Both foundations worked together to ensure that the desire of Mama Pia is realized. Through fruitful collaboration between both foundations, a tertiary higher institution of learning, The Peaceland College of Education, Enugu has been established. The Peaceland College of Education is therefore founded and funded by Mama Pia. The college shall continue to be driven by the same spirit that prompted Mama Pia to this initiative.
