Kuwait Times - - Technology -

In part­ner­ship with the Min­istry of State for Youth Af­fairs in Kuwait, Huawei Tech­nolo­gies, a lead­ing global in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion (ICT) so­lu­tions provider of­fi­cially launched its global flag­ship CSR pro­gram “Seeds for the Fu­ture” in Kuwait for the fifth year in a row.

The event was held and sup­ported by the Aus­tralian Col­lege of Kuwait (ACK) on De­cem­ber 5, 2018. “I would like to thank Huawei for send­ing our alumni to China to gain the prac­tice and the ex­pe­ri­ence,” said Vice Pres­i­dent of Ad­min­is­tra­tive Af­fairs at ACK, Dr. Ab­dul­lah Kark­ouh.

This year, Huawei spon­sored eight young tal­ents to par­tic­i­pate in the two week pro­gram to China. Seeds for the Fu­ture was launched in Kuwait in 2014. In 2017, Huawei Tech­nolo­gies Kuwait signed a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MoU) with the Min­istry of State for Youth Af­fairs to ad­vance the ICT skills of the youth in Kuwait. The com­mon goal for the pro­gram be­tween Huawei and the MOY is to help young stu­dents en­ter the In­for­ma­tion and Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion So­lu­tion (ICT) fields, de­velop their ICT skills, en­hance knowl­edge trans­fer, im­prove young gen­er­a­tions un­der­stand­ing of ICT and gain prac­ti­cal in­ter­na­tional work ex­pe­ri­ence.

Since its in­cep­tion in 2008, the pro­gram of­fered train­ing pro­grams to nearly 10,000 stu­dents glob­ally and has fa­cil­i­tated knowl­edge trans­fer, cul­ti­vated lo­cal ICT tal­ent and in­creased dig­i­tal en­gage­ment with dif­fer­ent en­ti­ties, with over 280 part­ner­ships with univer­si­ties in 96 coun­tries all over the world. The two week pro­gram in China will start in Bei­jing where the stu­dents will re­ceive Man­darin lan­guage classes and cul­tural train­ing such as cal­lig­ra­phy and paint­ing and also go on city tours.

The stu­dents then will spend time at Huawei’s Shen­zhen cam­pus where they will learn about trends in mo­bile in­ter­net ap­pli­ca­tion and de­vel­op­ment, in­tel­li­gent net­work ap­pli­ca­tion and de­vel­op­ment and many other cut­ting edge so­lu­tions through tech­nol­ogy work­shops and net­work­ing events.
