I finished reading this book in a few hours. Even though in the beginning it was describing the set-up of the NHEG, the way it was written made it very interesting. I have worked as a volunteer with Pamela for more than two years. I had not understood clearly the scope of the organization. With this book I had a detailed insight and realize how important the work of New Heights is.
Pamela, thank you for the nice reading journey. Wish you all the best.

Tremendous story of a single woman betting the odds and creating a nonprofit organization that helps both children and adults. This agency helps children in public, charter and home schooled environments. this type of organization is needed in more areas across this country. Great reading from cover to cover. Nicely written. This book explains that this nonprofit promotes literacy for children and adults by offering a range of educational support services. They help families from the selection of schools, organization of educational activities and getting the correct materials to help them achieve their goals..
One Nonprofit’s Journey to Success, is a work that focuses on motivating its readers to go forward with their efforts developing an organization that is true to one’s own values and beliefs. Ms. Singh’s goal is to ignite a shift in perspective when it comes to the defined purpose of the education system. Capturing her audience by moving readers through a typical day with the founder and director of New Heights Educational Group, Ms. Singh’s intent is made clear as she uses expressive illustrations that transform you into the busy home office Ms. Pamela Clark. A descriptive tone narrates the work, allowing the voice of the author to serve as one who is reiterating the story of how the life experiences faced by Ms. Clark influenced what NHEG came to be.
Offering a sound overview, Ms. Singh clearly presents the mission of NHEG as being an organization that “promotes literacy for children and adults by offering a range of educational support services.” In an area that is often overlooked, monetarily strained and lacking the abundance of time and resources required to help those in need, the support services offered by the programs within NHEG, are sought after to say the least. Spearheaded by the efforts of staff and volunteers the level of dedication shown by Ms. Clark makes for a remarkable write-up. The structure of the book strategically allows the reader to progress to different chapters, reading the mantras and expressions as given by Ms. Clark. This is engaging and causes readers to consider these points of view while “listening” to inspiring points of direction. Learning the many adversities that where faced by Ms. Clark, it is clear that her personal determination and desires of the heart aided her by giving her the strength to prevail. Her personal religious beliefs are eminent in the face of several personal trials and triumphs as being the foundation that led to Ms. Clark devoting her life to helping children, bettering the educational system and social service. If one would like to learn what it takes to start a nonprofit, there may be a more procedural, strategic book on the market but if you want to learn what it takes to commit to your dream, there isn’t a more heartfelt, passionately illustrative and personable work. Knowing the challenges that were experienced by Ms. Clark, this work is able to help even those who have become discouraged and maybe lost sight of their dreams continue to search for their “sign” to keep battling forward.
Ms. Clark is truly an example to and for those around her. Her efforts are needed, supported and as she sets out to do more good, I encourage all to read how one nonprofit got started on its journey toward success as it could truly encourage you to pursue your hopes, dreams, and live a more purpose-filled life!

I started gathering facts and information about the New Heights and talked to Ms. Clark over the phone several times to know more about the organization. I also gathered pictures and other facts related to her life. After that I actually started writing the book.
