Huawei Technologies Ghana has launched the first all-Girls Edition of its global flagship Corporate Social Responsibility Programme, “Seeds for the Future” in collaboration with the Ghana Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation at a virtual event in Accra, Ghana.

The programme aimed at developing local skilled ICT talents, enhancing knowledge transfer, promoting greater understanding of the telecommunications sector and bridging the communication gap between countries will benefit 60 ladies across various universities in Ghana during the 2021 edition which is under the theme: ‘Inspiring Global Talent to Shape the Future”
Speaking at the virtual launch ceremony, Ghana’s Deputy Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, Hon. Ama Pomaa Boateng, said, “This is a very good time for Ladies in ICT… and Huawei dedicating their Seeds for the Future Program to the Ministry’s Girls in ICT initiative is a step in the right direction. The Ministry shall not relent on our efforts to continue to empower women in the STEM ecosystem as we continue to prove through our activities”. 

“The Ministry is very keen on Digitalization and we believe one of the surest ways to accelerate the process to propel Ghana into a digital economy is through ICT skill training and capacity building. It is therefore important that we nurture young ICT Talents to give our great nation a more formidable future while remaining competitive on the global market.” She added

She also advised the participating ladies to remain focused during the program while representing Ghana as Ambassadors. “My advice to you is to go all out and grasp every bit of this opportunity by fully immersing yourselves in the experience and training as well as taking part in all the activities…  You are not only doing this for yourselves but representing Ghana. As ambassadors I implore you to let the Black Star of Ghana shine ever brighter through your commitment, dedication and above all Hardwork during this program.”

The Deputy Minister finally commended Huawei for the ICT giant’s contribution to the sector in Ghana.  “I would commend Huawei for all their contributions towards the development of ICT in Ghana. As the strategic ICT Partner of the Government, we are happy to see you go beyond commercial activities to nurture ICT Talents in Ghana… I therefore urge you to undertake more of such worthy causes to accompany Ghana in our Digital Transformation Drive.” She said.
