Updates from Blue Marble Dreams!

Although we haven’t written in a while, here are some updates from Blue Marble Dreams: I, Laura, am back in Butare working with the women at Inzozi Nziza. Thanks to many generous donations, I was able to bring over with me some supplies from the US and some great new t-shirts for the women to wear as uniforms! We would like to thank everyone who was involved in making this happen!

The women look great in their new uniforms!

Inzozi Nziza now has a new facebook page- http://www.facebook.com/inzoznzizaicecream. Want to follow more of the day to day happenings at the shop? Be sure to “like” out page!

Also, besides helping around the shop, I am also involved in English classes for the women drummers who are part of the cooperative that helped found and own the shop. Twice a week, after their drumming rehearsals, I go by and teach an English class. Here are some photos from our lesson today:

The women draw clocks to practice asking each other "What time is it?".

The rest of their classmates wait while they draw.

We often have many little visitors at our classes!
