Hi everyone! Thanks for checking out our page! We’re Nneka and Chiney Ogwumike. We grew up in Texas and now are both fortunate enough to have an opportunity to play in the WNBA. Our family is originally from Nigeria and we both go back often to visit our extended family. We are all about girls empowerment and want to use our platform in women's basketball in the US to help youth across the globe.
We are partnering with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to support UNICEF’s efforts in Nigeria. This fundraising competition is open to all girls youth basketball teams! Middle school and high school aged girls are all encouraged to participate. Totally up to you if you want to create a team from your school, AAU or other basketball league. We have three major goals for this competition:
We are really excited to launch this competition, see all the good that girls basketball can accomplish, and reward teams and players for their work! See below for the details of how it works and what you can win.
Thank you for teaming up with us!
