We are The Together Plan
We are a UK charity working with socially and economically disadvantaged communities in the former Soviet Union.
We help communities to help themselves
The Together Plan trains communities and their leaders to conceive, plan and run community activities, and pass on their skills to members of their and other communities.
We are sensitive to cultures and values
The Together Plan always works to understand a community’s needs and our projects are sensitive to the local culture, traditions, laws and values of that community.
We are the Next Generation
Our Youth for Youth movement brings together passionate young people across Europe and beyond to share ideas and expertise to transform their own and each other’s communities.
We revive Judaism
The Together Plan provides Jewish education and helps revive Jewish traditions, after tragic and destructive decades under Nazi occupation and Soviet rule.
We remember the past
The past is the key to understanding the present and planning for the future. Our heritage work includes recovering lost Jewish headstones in Brest, and translating Minsk Ghetto survivors’ memories into English.
We provide for the present
The Together Plan sends 20 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Belarus each year, from clothes to classroom supplies for Jewish Sunday schools to toys and games for disadvantaged children.
The Together Plan empowers communities in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe to learn how to help themselves. We help communities to see what can be achieved collectively, and work with community members to develop skills and provide training necessary to realise their vision.
We help communities to set up and run projects which community members of all ages can benefit from and participate in. At the same time, we promote responsible and transparent leadership, which is vital to develop the genuine friendship and trust necessary for a community’s survival. Ultimately, our communities will become self-sufficient both financially and in their activities – at which point we will step back, watching the community go from strength to strength.
Where we work
The Together Plan works to help re-establish community in the former Soviet Union and Central and Eastern Europe.
Decades of Communist rule has left individuals mistrustful of others, communities – especially religious ones – shattered, and people unaware of how to take control of their futures and the future of their communities. The Together Plan works with communities and their leaders to help them to develop and move towards self-sufficiency.
Our work current focuses on Belarus and Poland, with communities in Minsk, Polotsk, Bobruisk, Brest, Slutsk, Vetka and Kraków.
