Community development – Polotsk, Belarus

Our first project was providing support to the Jewish community within Polotsk. This town has twinned with Finchley Reform Synagogue (FRS), London. Evolve worked alongside FRS in teaching the community, fun day workshops for the children of the community, providing a framework for self sufficiency, performing religious services within the community (onsite at the community centre in Polotsk) and providing electrical and computer equipment.

Evolve has recently started working within the community of Mukachevo, Ukraine. We are looking at ways to utilise the local youth to run and organise communal activities. It is hoped that the starting of the kindergarten in Mukachevo, together the summer camp being run in August 2015, will galvanise the local youth.
