The purpose and mission of the Karima Gordon Foundation (KGF) is to keep Karima’s memory alive through providing self-confident and goal setting educational and cultural programs for girls and women, while networking and getting the intended message out to the public.

The Karima Gordon Foundation

The Karima Gordon Foundation (KGF) was created to save lives from illegal cosmetic procedures by motivating girls and women to be self-confident, set goals and realize their potential to achieve them. This will be accomplished through enriching educational, social, cultural and mentoring experiences that enhance self-esteem and purpose. The Foundation is also committed to ongoing education of the dangers of illegal body enhancement procedures to local and regional principalities.

KFG will achieve its mission and goals through highlighting the exceptional talents and experiences that brought joy and excellence to Karima Gordon’s life. She was an amazing visual artist, physical fitness buff and a trained model. These talents will be the underlying themes to enhance self-worth through workshops, seminars, pageantries, health and fitness sessions and cultural inspiring trips. Scholarships will also be awarded to assist participants with future educational goals.

I still think I will wake up from a bad dream.

Karima Gordon lost her life at the age of 37 leaving behind a then 16-year-old son who adored her. His life has been altered as well. She was strikingly beautiful but felt the need to change her physical appearance. Karima’s peculiar desire to improve her already seemingly perfect outward appearance took her life. Everyday more cases are reported from around the world that women are endangering their lives through body enhancement procedures. These procedures are dangerous even when performed by a legitimate medical doctor. KGF hopes to minimize the deaths and physical deformities that occur within the local community and beyond as a result of this dangerous procedure.

Your contributions and/or talents, expertise and knowledge will be greatly appreciated to educate, mold, mentor and sponsor prospective participants for a healthy life full of self- love and the love of others.
