Paris’ Journey


I am a self determined Accounting and Finance student who has the ideal eager and commitment in contributing towards Himaya Haven’s continuous admirable work with communities. During my time here volunteering, I aim to explore new opportunities and interests I’m faced with to further my self-development.

Awarded the completion of:

  • 8th June 2021 – Introduction to Adverse Childhood Experience (ACEs) and Early Trauma
  • 8th June 2021 – Prevent Online Training Course


“The period I volunteered at Himaya Haven was June 2021 to August 2021 as an Administrative/Financial Volunteer.

During my time, the sort of tasks I did consisted of;

  • Carrying out administrative tasks such as, checking and sending out emails, organising files and updating clients’ details wherever needed.
  • The financial tasks I carried out were updating the financial report spreadsheet and ensuring the spreadsheet matches the bank statements.
  • Creating case studies to demonstrate and to bring light to the different types of work Himaya Haven have done and have faced while creating further awareness to their purpose as a charity.

During my experience I learnt a variety of different things such as not only gaining new skill sets but more knowledge about the inner challenges families and individuals go through within the criminal justice system. I was given time to observe and learn a bit more about the different areas within the charity alongside my volunteer tasks. I was given the opportunity to conduct a few training programmes as well during my time which I enjoyed and found very informative. The Himaya Haven Team were very welcoming and made my short experience very valuable where if an opportunity ever arose again, I would work with them.
