In Waziristan,“one of the most dangerous places on earth”, Maria Toorpakai defies the Taliban -disguising herself as a boy, so she can play sports freely.
But when she becomes a rising star, her true identity is revealed, bringing constant death threats on her and her family. Undeterred, they continue to rebel for their freedom.

In these times all people must come together to educate ourselves and our youth in basic human rights. These rights were set forth by the United Nations in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The purpose of the Human Rights Walk is to unite all people in these rights and to make them a reality. Through education we can end war, discrimination and intolerance.
