Ten Ethiopian selected for Seeds for the Future 2024 Program

Huawei hosted a farewell event for the Ethiopian students who will be attending the Huawei Seeds for the Future 2024 training program.

The program will be held in Morocco from July 1st to 10th, 2024, and ten students from Ethiopia’s eight public universities will attend.

During the occasion, Solomon Soka, state minister to the Ministry of Labor and Skills, mentioned that such information and communication technology training helps young generations develop their skills and knowledge in the field, enhancing their career prospects and opening up new job opportunities.

He also acknowledged Huawei for providing such skill-boosting training annually.

Huawei East Africa Regional Vice President Hu Zhen stated that the Huawei Seeds for the Future program offers a range of benefits that can help young professionals develop their skills, knowledge, and networks in the field of ICT.

Since 2017, Huawei Ethiopia in collaboration with Ministry of Education has been sending the top ten students from Ethiopia to its head office in China to receive two weeks of training with the Seeds program.

However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been delivered online. The program for this year will be held in person and will bring together around 160 students from 18 African nations.

Students in this training will have several lecturers in key areas like 5G, IoT, network, cloud, culture, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills from ICT industry professionals to learn more about cutting-edge technology and innovation.

Huawei provides career opportunities to students who enroll in these trainings and participate in Huawei ICT academies located in all universities. In last year’s Seeds for the Future program, 106 students were certified.
