Ikponmwonsa’s Journey


“I volunteered as a Finance Assistant here at Himaya Haven from the 17th of June 2021 to the 30th of October 2022.

Majority of my time here was spent helping Zobia with recording and organising invoices on physical folders, Excel files and QuickBooks. I also assisted in recording bank statements, completing client data on the spreadsheets and filing documents. Volunteering here gave me the opportunity to complete the Adverse Childhood Experience course as well as the e-learning training on Prevent duty. These courses have enlightened me on the negative experiences that can impact a child’s development and on the practical ways of safeguarding vulnerable young people from radicalisation. Overall, my experience working here was fun. I got a better understanding of the finance for a small company and I received support from everyone when needed. I look forward to working here again in the future.
