Knowledge Katti was born and bred at the harbour town Walvis Bay, Namibia’s main port, where he also attended completed high school. He has consistently been one of the top students throughout his academic life. He completed a Bachelor of Commerce Degree at the University of Namibia (UNAM), with Economics, Accounting and Auditing as majors subjects. He completed his accounting articles with worldwide Accounting Firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers.
As a way to give back to the country and community that helped shape him, Knowledge Katti established The Knowledge Foundations in 2008. The Foundations are made up of three distinctive and separate entities that cover three different sections of charitable giving. Open Minds focuses on education and funds tertiary education for ten (10) students every year. Given his background as an alumnus of the University of Namibia, who was also in need of financial assistance, Mr. Katti understands the plight of young, hardworking students who could be deprived from a tertiary education due to a lack of funding. Brick by Brick encourages community cohesion and advancement. In 2011, the Foundation gave N$15,800 to the Namibian Women’s Federation.
The newest addition to the Knowledge Foundations is Healing Hands, with a focus on welfare and healthcare related issues and causes.
