Huawei to train top ICT Ugandan Students Online through the newly launched Sky Seeds for the Future.
Huawei, a leading global ICT solutions provider, has announced the 2020 edition Seeds for the Future Program known as the “Sky Seeds for the Future” despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
The announcement was made by the Public Relations Manager Ms Lina Cao who emphasized that the company shall carry out the program this year through online/e-learning platforms.
Ms Cao encouraged universities in Uganda to recommend their students to take advantage of the world class training program aimed at equipping and nurturing students through exposing them to the latest industry technology trends.
The Seeds for the Future program started in Uganda in 2016 and has been ongoing since then. Every year the top 10 university students in ICT-related courses are selected for a study trip in China. Approximately 30,000 students have benefited directly from this program globally since its inception.
This year however, the program is going to be different due to the effects of Covid-19 pandemic.
“The Seeds for the Future will be carried out online. It’s called the Huawei Sky Seeds for the Future. Just as the previous years, we have always had several activities such as student selection, interviews, closing ceremonies, two weeks training programs in China in the latest technology, it shall continue the same way this year but online. We are excited to add that the program this time round is open to more than 100 students. They will, among other things take part in training and exposure to 5G and cloud computing,” Ms. Lina Cao, the Public Relations Manager of Huawei Uganda, explains.
