Inflation in the countries where we work and the eroding purchasing power of sponsorship dollars make it hard to deliver a consistent level of assistance to families around the world. An increase of a few dollars in your monthly contribution will help us keep benefits strong for all people in the sponsorship program, including your sponsored friend, regardless of variations in local economies. With your support, sponsored friends and families in Unbound programs can meet their daily needs and go on to achieve great things.
Search by the first names of people awaiting sponsorship. Your results may also include anyone with a similar name. Not all children, students and elders waiting for sponsors are included here.

Unbound's sponsorship program offers assistance to people living with varying degrees of physical and mental disabilities. Often, people with special needs who live in poverty have little or no access to health and rehabilitation services. To preserve the privacy of our sponsored members, we do not share details about their disabilities online. If you would like to learn more about sponsoring someone with special needs, contact our Sponsor Services team at 1.800.875.6564 Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central time.
Unbound is committed to seeing our sponsored children complete their educations – whether they are in high school, vocational school, or university. We started the Finish Line program for young adults who are still studying and need the encouragement and support of a sponsor to help them reach their full potential. Unbound staff helps each student define an education plan, and students are encouraged to keep their sponsors updated on their progress.
