The Star (Kenya) - - News -

CYN­THIA ILAKO/ Huawei Tech­nolo­gies, the world’s largest maker of telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions equip­ment, has picked nine engi­neer­ing and ICT stu­dents in lo­cal pub­lic uni­ver­si­ties to at­tend a two-week train­ing in Shen­zhen, Guang­dong. The pro­gramme, un­der Huawei Seeds for the Fu­ture Fel­low­ship, is in line with a part­ner­ship the firm signed with the ICT min­istry in 2014 to build hu­man cap­i­tal through the de­vel­op­ment of telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions skills. “The in­dus­try has changed dras­ti­cally over the past five years with the de­vel­op­ments such as the In­ter­net of things and cloud tech­nolo­gies,” Huawei Kenya CEO Dean Yu said. “With this de­lib­er­ate en­gage­ment to sup­port the Kenyan youth, who to­day form the ma­jor­ity of the Kenyan pop­u­la­tion, is a sus­tain­able ef­fort to en­sure that the fu­ture of Kenya is in ca­pa­ble hands.” “Work­ing with the pri­vate sec­tor is a de­lib­er­ate move in­tended to in­crease pro­duc­tiv­ity,” ICT PS Vic­tor Kyalo said.
