Proximity is a women-owned small business that sits astride the worlds of program implementation and monitoring, evaluation, research, and learning. We deploy innovative research methods to collect data in fragile contexts where reliable  information is scarce. And we leverage that data to place learning at the center of our implementation to deliver dynamic programming in complex contexts.

The Pulse of Proximity

Proximity is a two-way street: we give access to those who support, and we amplify the voices of those who are supported. We go where others won’t, and there we speak to the most vulnerable communities to understand their needs and how to provide. We sit with local leaders in Syria to discuss democracy in conflict. We meet women healers in Iraq treating women who survived the worst of Islamic State brutality. We shadow teachers in Yemen to study war's affects on child development is affected by war. We talk shop with small business owners in Jordan to assess the impact and opportunity of refugees.
