Huawei plants seeds so technology can blossom
    2019-04-19  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

BEING selected for Huawei’s global flagship corporate social responsibility (CSR) program Seeds for the Future in Bangladesh was a dream come true for Tasfia Seuti.

A couple of months before being selected, Seuti’s life was full of stress and tension, as was the case with hundreds of thousands of Bangladeshi students who had no idea what to do after graduating.

In a country like Bangladesh, pursuing a career is often compared with “chasing a golden deer,” but Seuti, a final year student at Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology, is no longer worried about her future.

This is because the Huawei program has planted positive, visionary seeds in her mind.

“When Huawei gave us this opportunity, we came to understand a lot more about the corporate world,” said Seuti, who was made representative of the 10 students selected for the Seeds for the Future 2019 program.

She went on to explain that Seeds for the Future is one of Huawei’s global programs that invites capable students from different countries to their headquarters in Shenzhen and provides them with training about the corporate world.

Zhang Zhengjun, chief executive officer of Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Ltd., said they selected 10 students from the five top engineering and technological universities in Bangladesh.

“We arrange for them to visit China where they will learn about Huawei’s cutting-edge technologies at our headquarters in Shenzhen. They will also visit Beijing, where they will have a chance to learn about Chinese culture,” he said.

Zhang went on to say that this is the fifth time this year that Huawei has carried out the Seeds for the Future program in Bangladesh.

Bangladeshi Minister of Post, Telecommunications and ICT Mustafa Jabbar said this is an age of bringing young people into the mainstream.

The minister added that, “Huawei’s Seeds for the Future program is so beneficial for encouraging and supporting young people from all over the world. They have supported around 350 universities so far. Making such an investment in young people is commendable.”

The fifth edition of Huawei’s Seeds for the Future program was launched in Bangladesh on Feb. 18.

Huawei officials said the program was designed to cultivate more Information and Communications Technology (ICT) talent in Bangladesh and provide an opportunity for students to expand their technological skill sets and knowledge base during their training at Huawei’s headquarters.

Huawei believes young people are the main engine of development as well as digital advancement, according to Zhang, who added that this ICT talent hunt program will help students develop new ideas and help their society become fully connected and intelligent.

“With this project, we aim to plant a visionary seed in the minds of young people so that in the coming years they can actualize their own ideas to make society a better place to live,” said Zhang.

Launched in 2008, Seeds for the Future has been implemented in 108 countries and international organizations worldwide, benefiting over 30,000 students from 350 universities. Among them, more than 3,600 university students have been invited to study and learn at Huawei’s headquarters in China. (Xinhua)
