COVID-19: latest news and resources on child marriage and COVID-19

Introducing Marianna, Interim Coordinator for Girls Not Brides

Mariana Brungs, interim coordinator for Girls Not Brides.

I’d like to introduce myself as the new Interim Coordinator for the Girls Not Brides global partnership. I am excited about joining Girls Not Brides, and am very much looking forward to working with our partners towards making a difference in the lives of millions of girls around the world.

Before joining Girls Not Brides, I was the Head of Campaigns and Advocacy for Crisis Action in the UK. I developed global coalitions and strategies for international campaign and advocacy work on the protection of civilians in conflict situations including Sudan, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Burma. Before this, I was a diplomat with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

I’m keen to hear your thoughts on how to end child marriage. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter and stay in touch!
