Using Data For Change

Proximity International undertakes self-funded research in order to give back to the communities we serve. We operate as a socially responsible business, guided by a strong humanitarian ethos that champions accountability, transparency, sustainability, diversity, inclusion, and equality.  Our work amplifies the voices and builds the capacity of the communities that we serve. We also help to strengthen the humanitarian aid and development sectors by identifying gaps and redundancies, allowing for better coordination between actors.
