Huawei Takes Ethiopian Students to Morocco for Seeds for the Future Program

ADDIS ABABA – A group of Ethiopian university students are taking part in the Huawei Seeds for the Future 2024 training program in Morocco.

Huawei holds the skill-boosting information and communication technology training for university students annually. This year, students from 18 African countries are participating in the training that runs from July 1 to July 10, 2024.

From Ethiopia, ten students from eight public universities are among the participants. Huawei hosted a farewell event for the students before their departure to Morocco, the host of the Seeds for the Future 2024 program.

During the event, Solomon Soka, state minister of Labor and Skills, said such training helps young generations develop their skills and knowledge in the ICT field.

He has also acknowledged Huawei for providing it to the students, stating it would enhance their career prospects and open up new job opportunities.

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

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

For the last few years, however, the program was delivered online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the training is being attended by 160 students from across Africa in person.

Huawei Ethiopia says the students will learn more about 5G, IoT, network, cloud, culture, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills from ICT industry professionals.

The company 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.
