The Mewelde Moore Knowledge First Foundation was created to positively impact young men between the ages of 10-18. The Foundation will launch programs that will offer incentives for students in order to encourage high scholastic achievement.

Our mission is to help area youth achieve their greatest potential in education and sports.

Welcome to Knowledge First!
People ask me a lot, when did I know I wanted to have a foundation and how long has Knowledge First existed? My answer to them is…. almost 20 years ago, in my mind. I remember at 7 years old watching the news and seeing a celebrity visit a school and so many kids were happy to see them. How life changing that visit must have been. All I could think is “why don’t no one come to my neighborhood” and that day I decided if I ever made it I would come back to my community and give back. With the blessing of God I am able to do so. My efforts are global but my focus has been primarily in the  state of Louisiana. I have been able to serve underserved and underprivileged communities in the suburban areas of Scotlandville and both East and West Baton Rouge Parishes. This past year was a big year for MMKFF. It was a great accomplishment to have established partnerships with existing outreach programs in Louisiana.
