An infinitive can have its own subject. The subject of the infinitive is normally introduced by for.
Note that we use object pronouns (e.g. him, them, her etc.) after for.
The structure for + object + infinitive is common after adjectives, nouns and verbs. It is used when we are referring to possibility, necessity or frequency, when we are expressing wishes, suggestions or plans for the future, and when we are giving personal reactions to situations.
Instead of the for-structure, a that-clause with should or a subjunctive is often possible.
