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 the training necessary to realise their vision. We help 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 progress from strength to strength.
