Proximity Designs' Pressure Pump systems include foot-powered pumps that draw water directly from wells onto fields for irrigation. All of the Pressure Pump models are locally manufactured.
Established by Jim Taylor and Debbie Aung Din, Proximity Designs began in 2004, as a country office of iDE. Back then, Proximity Designs entered the Myanmar rural market with two treadle pumps, 13 staff and a distribution reach of just 600 villages. Now, eight years later, Proximity is accessible to nearly 80% of the rural population, employing a nationwide staff of over 350, and offering a complete range of services that address many of the most pressing needs of rural families.
