Our projects

Rwanda
Inzozi Nziza

Blue Marble Dreams’ pilot initiative is a partnership with a group of dynamic women in Butare, Rwanda, which will lead to the creation of Rwanda’s first ever local ice cream shop.

Inzozi Nziza (“Sweet Dreams”) aims to provide education to local women, a thriving business to the town of Butare – and the perfect place to relax and eat ice cream for everyone.

The shop will offer delicious, refreshing soft serve ice cream, produced where possible from locally sourced fruits and ingredients, including milk from local farmers. We’ll also be roasting Rwandan coffee to take away or to sip inside.

Our workers are shareholders, with an active, invested role in the business. All one hundred women of Ingoma Nshya have been offered training in English, hospitality and computing, thus providing education and opportunity to those who in many cases have been offered little of either.

We believe in the transformative potential of ice cream – and entrepreneurship – as a source of happiness and sustainable livelihoods for those in need. If you do too, we hope you’ll follow our progress, taste our flavours and be a part of the sweetest of dreams.
