Solutions journalism is news about how communities and organizations are responding to social and environmental problems. This collection contains solutions stories highlight some of the efforts that countries have made to increase access to education for girls. In one story, a nonprofit in Morocco offers after-school programs and tutoring to young women in the hopes that they will finish school and delay young marriages. In another, a school offers scholarships to indigenous girls in rural Guatemala - where 60 percent of indigenous women are illiterate. Another story shows how educating women creates resilience when faced with climate disasters and schools that have opened in refugee camps see an increase in female participation rates, resulting in an improved society.
