Huawei Ghana, via its Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, has selected 10 Ghanaian tertiary students for a training to develop their IT skills in China.
The 2019 edition of Huawei Ghana’s CSR, Seeds for the Future 2019, was launched in partnership with Ghana’s Ministry of Communications. These students were selected from the University of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana Technology University College (GTUC), and Koforidua Technical University (KTU).
The training is to help these students be able to identify and exploit new opportunities in the IT world.
Tommy Zhou, the Managing Director for Huawei Ghana, said, “Information and communications technologies (ICT) have become crucial growth engines for many different industries. As a global ICT leader, Huawei is committed to bringing digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected intelligent world. In light of this commitment, promoting the development of the ICT industry in countries where we operate like Ghana, remains crucial in fostering this vision to fruition.
The 10 students will undergo a one-week hands-on training at the Huawei Headquarters. They will be taken through a couple of lessons: enterprise management, 5G Network Setup, IoT, apt Enterprise Solutions demonstrations, etc.
They will also be taken to Huawei’s world-class Labs and Exhibition Halls. At the Labs and Exhibition Halls, accompanied by Huawei’s top engineers, the students will have hands-on practice in Huawei’s top-notch laboratories.
Huawei Ghana’s Managing Director, Tommy Zhou added that “Huawei believes that access to education is vital to create opportunities that support fair and sustainable development in economies, therefore our global CSR initiatives largely focus on education and knowledge transfer. This is the main reason behind the Seeds for the Future, Huawei’s global CSR flagship program. It is our most heavily invested CSR activity, and we will continue with this investment globally in the long term.”
