Who we are

Evolve is a registered charity born out of Dawn Bennett's wish to help others, the seed of which was the twinning of her Bat Mitzvah in 2012 with girls in Polotsk, Belarus. This seed grew and Evolve became registered with the charity commission of England and Wales in August 2012.

Our mission

"Helping communities help themselves".

Our aims

Evolve aims to provide assistance to communities to enable them to become self sustaining. Assistance may be given as:

    - Financial: donations, grant writing advice, financial negotiations, accounting
    - Physical: provide equipment, teaching materials, training courses
    - Emotional: summer camps, personnel development, leadership skills

Our work

Evolve is based in the UK for administrative purposes. Our first project is in Polotsk, northern Belarus. We hope to extend our involvement to other communities within Belarus very shortly. Evolve is not restricted to Belarus and remains open to assist communities from any country.

How we can help?

We can provide financial, physical or emotional assistance as mentioned above, using a network of people willing to lend their time, and resources, to assist us. Information from our training library is available on request and constantly being updated and added to.
