Sweet Dreams

This Sunday, July 26, Blue Marble Ice Cream presents Brooklyn Dreams Big, an evening of ice cream and music supporting Sweet Dreams, Rwanda's first-ever local ice cream shop.
The creators of Sweet Dreams are Rwandan Odile Gakire Katese and the owners of Blue Marble Ice Cream, Jennie Dundas and Alexis Miesen. Their goal is to bring fun, joy, leisure and laughter into the everyday lives of Rwandans through the sweet treat of ice cream! Though life can be bitter, Sweet Dreams will help "reconcile people with life by providing privileged moments when life reminds them that it is also sweet".
The event includes an ice cream social, silent auction and special performance by the women of Ingoma Nshya, Rwanda's first-ever women's drumming group, who will be playing a selection of music for guests. These women will also learn skills in ice cream production and shop operation while earning a sustainable income running Sweet Dreams.
