About the AAVia Foundation

The AAVia Foundation for the Health of Bolivian Children is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity founded in 2012 by the Malia family. The heart of the organization is based on a three decade personal and professional relationship between the Malia family, Bolivia, and the medical system in the capital city of La Paz.

By funding Bolivian-based organizations working to improve children's health, the AAVia Foundation provides support where it is wanted and needed.

Clean Hands, Healthy Schools

Run by nursing students and professors at the School of Nursing at Pucarani, Bolivia, the program teaches hand and dental hygiene to elementary schoolchildren in the surrounding rural region.

AAVia Funding: $9885

Nursing Student Scholarships

Each scholarship covers tuition, room & board, and fees for one school year. The four selected students have a financial need while maintaining high academic standards for their future careers.

AAVia Funding: $4400
