Kōkua Exchange Orientation for Community Members
Timebanking, also known as skillsharing, is an opportunity that allows the community to ‘barter’ services indirectly with other people by locking their trade/barter hours into the ‘bank’. From there, they can then cash in on those opportunities in the future. It also acknowledges that everyone has skills to share and trade with others, and that the community is strengthened when neighbors help one another.
The core values of TimeBanking include: Asset, Redefining Work, Reciprocity, Social Networks, and Respect. It is being practiced around the world as an alternative economic platform that facilitates the exchange of services using time as the currency and creates opportunities for members to:
- Strengthen the fabric of our community,
- Serve people and give them a means to serve, and
- Establish new relationships and meet vital needs of our community members.
Kanu Hawai’i is seeking partnerships and volunteers to help develop our Timebank. Please contact our Timebank Coordinator, Angel, at email@example.com .
