Awareness Trips

Travel with us on a journey of discovery

See the work of Unbound firsthand by taking an awareness trip! Since 1988, Unbound has led thousands of sponsors and non-sponsors alike to visit the communities where we work and see how families are using sponsorship to overcome poverty.

Whether it’s to meet your sponsored friends or simply experience the beauty of another culture, awareness trips offer an adventure like no other.

Let us be your guide

From arranging your lodging, itinerary, meals and in-country transportation to connecting you with families to listen, learn and celebrate with them, Unbound staff members will guide you every step of the way.


Staff from both Kansas City and the country where you travel will guide you on an adventure like no other.

Take an affordable adventure

An awareness trip is one of the most affordable and fun ways to travel.
You can have the trip of a lifetime for less than if you traveled on your own or with a tour group.
