Achieving scalable impact by design
Proximity Designs is one of the largest non-profits operating in Myanmar today. Founded in 2004, our products and services have improved the lifestyles, and boosted the incomes of over 250,000 rural people across the country. To reach scale, and maximise impact, we apply a business model, and design thinking, to our mission. We believe this to be the most sustainable, and effective way of helping people get more money. And that’s ultimately what we want, more money in the pockets of the rural poor, for them to decide what to do with.
