"Arias served as president of Costa Rica from 1986 to 1990, and has been the recipient of many awards, including the Martin Luther King Jr. Peace Award and the Nobel Peace Prize in 1987.
He used funds from the Nobel to establish the Arias Foundation for Peace and Human Progress. The foundation allowed the creation in Costa Rica of the Center for Human Progress to promote equal opportunities for women in all sectors for Central American society, the Center for Organized Participation to foster change-oriented philanthropy in Latin America and the Center for Peace and Reconciliation to work for demilitarization and conflict resulting in the developing world."
