Proximity International provides monitoring, evaluation, research and capacity building services. Our solutions can be rapidly deployed and customized to meet the needs of clients working in even the most insecure and hard-to-reach environments.
We specialize in monitoring multi-sectoral and multi-year programs in hard-to-reach and complex areas. Our trained field teams collect accurate data used to verify and assess project implementation and related conditions. Monitoring activities generate a wealth of information from the field – some of it with the potential to support a program long before a final report is due. Proximity provides clients with data in real -time through mobile data collection and cloud-based information management.
Proximity International team of humanitarian aid and development experts provides insightful, evidence-based evaluations services which empower our clients to design the most efficient and effective aid and development initiatives possible. We work with a number of widely accepted evaluations frameworks and analysis formats including Contribution Analysis, QuIP, Most Significant Change, Logframe Analysis, OECD DAC Criteria.
We offer evidence-based research on humanitarian and development programming in fragile contexts. We work with think tanks, academic research centers, development agencies and universities and lead the collection of qualitative and quantitative data to provide evidence and credible findings to support their research.
We specialize in designing useful trainings to build up the capacity of local partners and local actors. Drawing on insights and lessons learned from our field research, we partner with humanitarian and development programs to develop unique curricula to overcome knowledge and skills gaps with adults and children alike. Building off our in-house field monitor training platform, our Jordan-based Distance Learning Center pairs technology-enabled solutions with seasoned technical experts to deliver trainings to men, women, boys and girls across the globe, even in the hardest-to-reach areas.
