Our featured speaker was Simon Moss, managing director of programs for the Global Poverty Project, who discussed Rotary’s successful advocacy role in his home country of Australia. He was introduced by former district governor Ezra Teshome who also was the short program speaker.

Simon talked about working alongside Rotarians on polio eradication in Australia. He shared his personal story about why he cares so much about polio.  His mother has lived with the disease for years.  He remembers how she was not able to run with him when he was growing up and how sad this for her, both then, and when she was growing up as she was not able to play like other kids. After hearing about his mom’s experience and how it impacts people’s lives he understood the importance of fighting diseases like polio and how important stories are.

ImageHe then attended a Rotary convention in Australia and was asked by Rotarians what he was doing to fight polio so he went back to his Global Poverty Project and asked what they could do.

“The End of Polio” is their campaign that started in Australia.

They focused on how to get governments to give money to fight polio.  They turned in 25,000 petitions to the Australian government asking them to start supporting polio eradication.  In 2011, $119 million was committed by several world leaders including Australia’s.  And then when that funding was in jeopardy in Australia they went to work again to mobilize Rotarians.  The prime minister of Australia addressed the International Rotary Convention in Sydney and announced their $100 million commitment to polio eradication!  This showed that “the power of Rotary is huge.” (President Tom said sitting in the audience that day was “one of the most electrifying moments of his life.”)
