Happy Birthday Inzozi Nziza!

Last Saturday, Inzozi Nziza celebrated its one year anniversary. Everyone worked together to advertise the event to the community and decorate the shop. We wanted to attract a lot of customers and make the entire community excited about our birthday. As part of our anniversary, we wanted to further advertise our new coffee project. In order to do this, we gave out hot and cold coffee samples to people passing on the street and encouraged them to come inside. We were able to talk to a lot of people walking past the shop about the local coffee we now roast on site.

On our birthday, we also celebrated our monthly kids’ day! In order to support community development, Inzozi Nziza has a kids’ day once a month. Next to a tip jar on our counter we ask for spare change to buy ice cream for local children. Then on kids’ day we give out free ice cream from the donations we have received that month. The events have been very successful in the past and the kids have all been very excited about getting an opportunity to eat some ice cream! In order to further involve the children who came by in our shop, we designed games and activities throughout the day. This month we made homemade play dough using only water, salt, flour, and food coloring. The kids were all really excited and enjoyed playing with it. They hadn’t seen anything like play dough before but quickly tried making new things. They spelt out their names, sculpted their families, and even made themselves jewelry. Inzozi Nziza hopes to do more social programming and include the community more in the future!

Here are some pictures from the event:

The kids really enjoyed the play dough!
