Huawei has on November 11, 2019 officially flagged off the eight students to travel to China for two weeks technological training, through the 2019 Seeds for the future program.
The Students were flagged off by the Minister of ICT and Innovation Honorable Paula Ingabire, Chinese Commercial Counsellor Wang Jianxin, Huawei Country Director Yang Shengwan and MINEDUC representative Leon Mwumvaneza.
In her speech, Hon Paula lauded Huawei for the Seeds for the Future Initiative and its partnership with the government of Rwanda.
“Government needs to partner with private sector such as Huawei, not only in implementing technology solutions, but more importantly in working together to build the skills in our current and future workforce. Through initiatives such as these that involve skilling of young people, our country can only go forward,” Says Hon. Paula Ingabire.
“I want to thank Huawei again for this strong partnership with our government, ministries, and the strong commitment to future partnership. I believe that together we will be able to transform Rwanda’s economy and the lives of its citizens,” She added.
Speaking at the ceremony Mr. Jianxin, the Chinese Commercial counselor emphasized the importance of ICT and its capability to provide employment and transform the economy.

This is just one example of how ICT is transforming the lives of everyday citizens, and driving the economy. ICT has truly transformed our economy, creating jobs for people even in remote places. But this technological trend would never be possible if we did not skill students, professionals and entrepreneurs as a nation. That is why efforts such as the Seeds for the Future and the Huawei ICT competition are so important,” He says
