Who are we?

Stichting Cosmic Fire Foundation was founded a few years ago by chairwoman Candida Postma - Sanchez, and is an organisation completely ran by volunteers.

The purpose of the foundation is improving the living conditions of the Lakota Sioux in the South Dakota reservations.
The foundation does so by actively participating in selected local projects.
For this we are working closely together with ONE Spirit, a US foundation in Rapid City, South Dakota, just like us a completely volunteer organisation.
Together with our partner it has been decided that food aid to the Pine Ridge Reservation is for now our primary target. Thanks to donations and the proceeds of our two webshops we are now able to pay for food packages for app. 10 families each month.
Besides this we have contributed to the Manderson Youth Center Safe House, and we are supporting the Sicangu LakotaYouth Center in Mission, in the Rosebud Reservation. On other pages you will find more information on these projects.

A lot of work is still to be done to get more youths out of the downward spiral of poverty, threats, gangs, drugs and suicide. Much attention will be given to this in the future. There will have to be more youth shelters like the Manderson one.
We are open for suggestions for projects along this line.

The foundation's board of the foundation is led by:
Candy Postma-Sanchez (chairwomam), Rianne C. ten Veen (secretary) en Gerrit Postma (treasurer)
