Zumbara is a time-banking community that facilitates thousands of exchanges between people in Istanbul and in other cities in Turkey. Zumbara recognizes the opportunity to use the tool of time-banking to create a better connected community and an accessible way to start to become involved in what is going on around you. It believes that 'another world is possible', in which people are less preoccupied with money, and more embracing of values that have become crucial in an increasingly urbanized world: these include trust, community, gratitude, and integrity.
"Ihtiyaciniz Olan Her Sey" (Everything We Need) introduces the vision of Zumbara through the experience of Burcu Ünal- a regression therapist, student, and mother living in Istanbul.
