Torekes (Stub)

The ‘Toreke’ is the local currency of Ghent’s Rabot-Blaisantvest district. Residents earn Torekes by helping out in the local community, from maintaining public spaces to running activities with local children. They can cash in their hard-earned reward at the local food shop, rent an allotment, have their bicycle repaired or buy a bus or theatre ticket. Not only do Torekes provide an incentive for residents to help make their communities cleaner, greener and more fun, but they also give local businesses a boost.
