The Kareem D. Sapp Foundation (KDS) is a nonprofit organization formed to provide positive, encouraging alternatives to the negative forces of violence, gangs and drugs. We seek to empower our youth to make constructive choices day by day and to pursue a better future for themselves.
We are working with schools, teens, community organizations, the police department, lawyers and concerned citizens to make a positive difference in the lives of our precious children. Our ultimate goal is to enable our youth to grow into responsible, productive adults who will also contribute to future generations.
Kareem D. Sapp
was an innocent 19 year old who was murdered on December 18, 2007 when he simply went to do a favor for a girl who was only a friend. For months, no one was arrested for Kareem’s murder because none of the many witnesses to this senseless murder were willing to speak to investigators. Kareem, a life-long resident of Uniondale, attended Uniondale High School and lost his life in the neighborhood where he was raised.
