Help One Now empowers families in developing countries through high-capacity local leaders with proven solutions to end extreme poverty.

Our vision is to empower 100,000 families to end extreme poverty in their lives by 2030.

Empowering Leaders

Help One Now empowers local leaders through friendship and partnership. We work with leaders who are already working effectively in their respective communities. These leaders are friends and partners in the fight against extreme poverty. They are our greatest resource, and without them, sustainable change is impossible.

Empowering Families

We serve in some of the poorest communities in the world, where people live on less than $2 US per day. In these communities, empowering families through education and entrepreneurship has proven to be the most effective course for long term change, creating a hand up to build a better future for themselves.

Chris Marlow

Chris Marlow

Founder & CEO

In 2007, Chris met a starving young child living in an abandoned gas station in Zimbabwe. That encounter compelled him to start Help One Now and dedicate his life to seeking justice by empowering leaders and organizing a wide table of people to do good together. He currently lives in downtown Raleigh with his wife, two daughters, and his German Shepherd pup.
