GIRL POWER: WNBA players NNEKA OGWUMIKE and CHINEY OGWUMIKE are "two of the most prominent Nigerian-American athletes" in the U.S., and last week they "rolled out the details of their relationship with UNICEF." Creating a competition for middle school and high school girls' basketball teams, the sisters have "hatched a fundraising effort in which teams compete to raise the most money to benefit UNICEF's U.S. Fund, including the Girls' Education Project, which aims to give 1 million girls in northern Nigeria access to quality learning, provide scholarships for female teachers and establish safe spaces for girls." The Ogwumikes will "devote their time and energies to the new program while playing through their WNBA seasons" (ESPNW, 6/10).
