The Huawei Seeds for the Future program which started in 2016 is an all-expense-paid two-week program to China (one week in Beijing and one week in Shenzhen). The program allows 10 students (seeds) to develop their ICT skills, gain practical international work experience, and receiving an introduction to Chinese language and culture that will prepare them for an increasingly interconnected global job market.
The 10 that will be selected for Huawei Seeds for the Future program 2018 are scheduled to leave for China on 6th April 2018 for two weeks and during the launch got a chance to hear testimony from one of the previous seeds Ms. Maria Drolence Mwanje (Student, Mbarara University of Science & Technology). Speaking in Chinese, Maria thanked the sponsors for the opportunity they provided her and the other seeds of 2017. She reiterated that the opportunity to travel and fly for the first time highlighted some of her accomplishments for 2017 and that she is currently interning at the Huawei Uganda office.
Also speaking at the launch, Mr. Muzamilu Mukwatampola (Ag. Commissioner for Higher Education, Ministry of Education & Sports) thanked Huawei for providing this opportunity that has helped the seeds get exposed to the latest in knowledge transfer, teaching and research capabilities, ICT trends, and hands-on ICT training.
Mr. Patrick Muinda (Assistant Commissioner, Communications & Information Management) also thanked Huawei for this initiative.  He encouraged the seeds to seize this opportunity to enhance their theoretical skills by getting as much exposure as possible in terms of hands-on practical skills.

Mr. Chu Maoming (Deputy Chief of Mission, Chinese Embassy) noted that the since opening diplomatic ties with Uganda in 1962, the program is a good example of Chinese companies carrying out win-win cooperation fulfilling the well-being of all Ugandans through Corporate Social Responsibility.
