This weekend I was reading about the Mo Ibrahim foundation and some of the things they are trying to do to improve Africa. Here's an extract :

"The Mo Ibrahim Foundation is, he said, trying to re-brand Africa. The award for Achievement in African Leadership offers a prize of $5m (£3.1m) to former leaders who have promoted good governance, with $200,000 (£123,000) per year for the rest of their lives.
"We need to celebrate success," said Mr Ibrahim. "All the time we talk about failures. We wanted to reward great achievers."
He notes that in western countries, successful leaders make huge amounts of money when they leave office.
In Africa, this is not the case. He says that the money provides financial stability to allow great leaders to carry on their work once they give up power."

Q : Does Haiti need something like this ?
