As the report reflects, last year, we heralded some proud achievements. We provided direct training to more than 1,000 people in Haiti; we completed over 1,700 vital repair works on a wide range of homes and buildings; and we brought 31 volunteers to our projects. These developments are making a real impact, rebuilding communities and transforming lives.
At Haven, we take our governance and accountability extremely seriously. Recognising the trust with which our donors, partners and volunteers treat us, we would like to reassure you that we place an immeasurable importance on maintaining the highest degrees of accountability and financial management.
- Our yearly financial records are always available here on our website. Our accounts are prepared in accordance with the Statement of Recommended Practice, Accounting and Reporting by Charities (SORP) and FRS102, the financial reporting standard applicable in the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland: this is recognised as best practice by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).
- We are fully compliant with the charter of the Charities Regulatory Authority, and are signatories to the ICTR Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising, the Comhlámh Code of Good Practice for Volunteer-Sending Agencies, and the Dóchas Code of Conduct on Images and Messaging.
- Every member of Haven’s Board, including the Chairman, is voluntary, receiving no salary, pension or benefits-in-kind for their role in the charity.
We completely understand that, when you donate to us, you trust us to use your money to reach out to those in Haiti who need it most and to utilise it in the most effective way possible. We can assure you that this is of the utmost importance to us: in 2015 alone, we spent €1,010,143 on our charitable activity, and just 10% of our funds were used on governance and administration.
One by one, hand in hand and with a true spirit of hope, Haven is joining with the people of Haiti to seize new opportunities and to live with independence: thank you for being part of that journey.
