  • 2. Gary Ringger TMG Foundation was founded in 2002 based on a vow made by businessman Gary Ringger, who committed the ultimate purpose of a new business venture in 1991 to be for “Kingdom purposes.” The proceeds from the sale of that business were used to launch orphan ministry. As a result of this alliance TMG Foundation pays all USA administrative costs for Lifesong for Orphans where Gary serves as Chairman/President of Lifesong for Orphans. This commitment assures Lifesong for Orphans donors that 100% of their donations will go directly to care for orphans and their needs.

They strive for academic achievement and increased use and understanding of English, while providing two nutritious meals a day and health care. Along with providing their educational needs, we also seek to incorporate spiritual emphasis with daily prayer, Bible reading, Bible memorization, and celebrating Christian holidays such as Christmas and Easter. Our three school campuses provide education for Nursery students through Grade 7. Our hope is to not only provide education, but also share the love of Christ with students as we guide them into a hopeful future.
