The Together Plan

Charity description

The Together Plan logo
We believe that communities can learn to self-develop, with responsible guidance and close collaboration. Many communities in the Former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe rely on funding from charities in order to exist, but this is a fragile and insecure solution. As charity funds reduce, communities are disappearing.. The ethos of The Together Plan, is to unite communities with development partners in a way that is open, honest and transparent, so that we all work together to find solutions for a more sustainable and independent future.

The Together Plan is the brainchild of Debra Brunner (London) and Artur Livshyts (Minsk). Debra Brunner made links to Belarus in 2008 when her family hosted a visit by two children from the south of Belarus, an area that was, and continues to be, badly affected by the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster of 1986. That experience had a profound impact on her and led her to become involved in Jewish Community Development and distribution of humanitarian aid to the region. This work led her to Artur Livshyts, a citizen of Belarus who was already heavily involved in Jewish Community development and aid distribution locally. It became clear to both that many different types of communities, were struggling to exist due to a clear lack of skills and tools vital to grow, develop and sustain community life. For this reason The Together Plan has become a reality.
