Powerful sounds pierce the silece of the Rwandan countryside. A group of women, 60 strong, pound out rhythms of joy.

In 1994, Rwanda suffered a devastating genocide. Yet women are helping to rebuild the human spirit. Kiki Katese decided to start Ingoma Nshya, Rwanda's first and only women's drumming troupe. For women from both sides of the conflict, the troupe has been a place to build new relationships, to heal and to rediscover joy.

These women opened Rwanda's first and only ice cream shop, helped by Jennie and Alexis of Brooklyn's Blue Marble Ice Cream. The women named the shop Inzozi Nziza, or Sweet Dreams.
