Huawei to train 100 Malawian youth in ICT


ICT service provider, Huawei has announced an increase in the number of brilliant students to be enrolled in its 'Seeds for the Future' Information and Communication Technology (ICT), programme.

Huawei’s Southern Africa president, Leo Chen has made the announcement during the hand over of the National Data Centre,  to Malawi government.

According to Chen, the training opportunities that the institution offers to passionate Malawian boys and girls is part of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities that have been put together to ensure mutual benefits between the community and the company.

The increase in number of students is from 50 which Chen hopes will give a chance to more youth to know more about ICT operations.

“Our journey has come a long way and our partnerships have increased many fold over the years. The Government of Malawi has supported us to implement some of the most sought after flagship training programmes, such as Seeds for the Future Student training programmes. Last year, 50 students from Universities and Colleges across Malawi trained under our Seeds for the Future Programme,” said Chen.

Seeds for the Future seeks to equip talented youth with skills and expertise to bring digital to every home and institution. 

He adds: “From what I've seen, Malawi's youth are some of the most innovative and entrepreneurial in the world. To reiterate our commitment, I now announce that we are offering free ICT trainings to 100 outstanding Malawian students this year through our Seeds for the Future training program.”
