The only power great enough to move government agencies, systems, courts, hospitals, schools, and big business to action is public demand.

Country Leader

Brenda Okori is Rainbird Uganda's Country Leader. Based on her experience with children in Uganda, their vulnerability makes her want to fight to protect their inherent rights. She wants to see many changes that ensure children are protected, to include educating them about their rights and how to stand up for them, lifting their self-esteem, and helping them in cases of abuse. She wants to protect girls from rape, defilement, abortion, torture, abandonment, and prostitution, and see them get justice and help physically, emotionally, and spiritually. As a child, Brenda endured abuse. It had a lasting impact. She believes that if someone had reached out to her to protect her from the harm that surrounded her, she would be in better shape for it today. Brenda is committed to ensuring that children are protected and loved
