The husband-and-wife team of Jim and Debbie Aung Din Taylor started small in 2004, but today the founders of the socially responsible company Proximity Designs work together with Harvard and Stanford Universities. 2012 was their most successful year ever, as they were able to better the lot of Burmese farmers with over 500 projects.
