Kaitaia TimeBank

Welcome to Kaitaia Time Bank!

Time Banking is a way to trade knowledge, skills and services within a community. For every hour you spend doing something for someone else, instead of dollars, you earn time credits.  You can then use these credits to buy another member's time to get the services you need.

Everyone's time is equal.  No matter what type of work is done, one hour equals one time credit.  1=1.  Every person is valued equally. 

Our mission is to facilitate an equitable and resiliant way for for Aotearoa New Zealand by creating a means of exchange that values sharing the gifts we have we others, strengthening a sense of community and inspiring respect for each other and our environment.
