Timu is powered by an online platform that measures the three main expectations that organisations and individuals commit to when engaging in any exchange of value – namely; show up, complete a task, make a payment.
Timu offers a growing database of trustworthy (and mainly township-based) people on a searchable, map-based Marketspace, thereby helping organisations find the best people for the opportunities they have to offer.
Timu verifies the information flowing through our platform to allow for safe interactions between members.

Timu measures the small things – this helps people build a track record that shows they do what they say they will.
Just because people lack formal qualifications, does not mean that they do not have skills to contribute. Timu helps them show what they are capable of in a transparent way.
