In 2010, Partners for a New Beginning (PNB) committed to broaden and deepen engagement between the United States and local communities abroad on issues of economic opportunity, science and technology, education, and exchange, in support of President Obama's vision for a New Beginning based on mutual interest and respect. To do this, PNB will establish locally-owned and driven chapters to identify their communities' priorities and partner with U.S. or local businesses and NGOs to devise programs to address these priorities and gaps in their communities. These partnerships will increase access to financing, boost business capacity and development services, improve educational opportunities for students and teachers, foster physical and virtual exchange programs, and enhance science and technology solutions that will positively impact up to 500,000 people across PNB targeted countries over five years.
