THE STORY:

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. Seeing the inequalities facing girls in Nigeria and how much harder it is for them than it was for us – we are determined to do what we can to help!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

We're all about Girls Empowerment and we want to show what girls basketball in the United States can do to help girls across the globe. 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:

1. Engage American girls basketball players in community service. You all have the power to make a difference and we would be honored if you’d do that with us!

2. Raise awareness among Americans about what is happening right now in Nigeria. It’s not just the terrible situation with the kidnapped girls – there are a lot of other needs for girls in Nigeria. Here is more information about what’s needed. (link to Emergency Thematic Report)

3. Raise money for UNICEF Nigeria's emergency fund that will help to support programs such as girls education and girls empowerment among other critical initiatives protecting and saving the lives of children.

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!

Sincerely,
Nneka and Chiney Ogwumike
