Huawei launches Seeds for the Future programme

Huawei Telecommunication Technologies on Friday launched the Seeds for the Future Programme at the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) in Windhoek.

At the ceremony, Huawei’s Public Relations Manager Micheal Namoongo said 25 students in total will benefit from the online programme which takes place from 21 August to 28 August.

The students are from the International University of Management (IUM), University of Namibia (UNAM) and NUST.

“The students will obtain valuable cutting-edge ICT knowledge developed by Huawei’s headquarters and experience cross-cultural communication virtually,” he said.

Justina Mateus from NUST said she is honoured to have been chosen to participate.

“I believe it is a good opportunity to develop my knowledge in general, as well as my ICT skills,” Mateus said.

At the same event, NUST Vice Chancellor Professor Erold Naomab stated that the programme is the result of a Memorandum of Understanding signed by NUST and Huawei a year ago.

He said it will expose students to the next level of their studies with the aid of ICT.

At the same event, Huawei Managing Director, Micheal Zhang, stated that the programme will offer rich experiences in learning with other countries and that hopefully next year, more than 25 students will benefit from the programme.

“We believe in you and by sharing expertise, we will be able to prepare you for the future as you play an important role for the future,” Zhang said.
