CEO of Girls Not Brides: The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage (she/her)
As Chief Executive Officer of Girls Not Brides: The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage, Dr. Faith Mwangi-Powell believes that every girl has the right to lead the life she chooses. By ending child marriage, we can achieve a safer, healthier, and more prosperous future for all.
Girls Not Brides is the only global partnership uniquely entirely focused on building a worldwide movement to end child marriage. As its CEO, Faith is responsible for catalysing the partnership and supporting the broader movement. She has over 20 years of experience in managing complex public health programmes and was the founding Executive Director of the African Palliative Care Association and the Global Director for The Girl Generation. Faith holds a PhD in women’s economic development and fertility behaviour from the University of Exeter and a master’s degree in population policies and programs from Cardiff University. Her articles have been published in numerous peer-reviewed scientific journals.
When not working, you’ll find Faith outdoors walking with her two dogs or indoors cooking her favourite Kenyan food.
