MISSION

Our core focus is on the upliftment and social development of all communities, across racial lines, ethnicity, religion, class, gender and social standards

The gross level of inequality , poverty and unemployment are the major drivers of our foundation

The economic empowerment of all people with the emphasis on previously disadvantaged people is a major objective

MANIFESTO

In the face of our communities, further enhanced and aggravated by the systematic and alarming degeneration of it's social fibre, we contend that the PBI deserves the opportunity, judging from its successes over a relatively short space of time, to heed the call of despaired, disillusioned and despondent communities, that are desperately crying out for a new dispensation.

The PBI further contends that its motto "We are Agents of Change" is indicative of its commitment to bring about and maintain irrevocable change in the lives of ordinary South Africans.
