Global technology giant Huawei, in collaboration with Ghana’s Ministry of Communication, has selected a total of 10 students drawn from the University of Ghana (UG), the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), the Ghana Technology University College and the Koforidua Technical University to be sponsored to China for intensive training to help develop their skills.

This forms part of the launch of the 2019 edition of the flagship Corporate Social Responsibility initiative of Huawei in Accra known as "Huawei seeds for the Future 2019".

Meanwhile, Ghana’s Minister of Communication, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, said her ministry is working with the Education Ministry to ensure that pupils at the basic level are well-equipped with ICT skills.

According to her, the Ghana Education Service (GES) curriculum is being reviewed to include Coding and other advanced courses as subjects to encourage the pupils in ICT to greater heights.

In an interview with Class91.3FM's Jerry Akornor after the launch, Mrs Owusu-Ekuful said efforts are being made to equip basic schools with adequate ICT equipment to accomplish the agenda.

"We are working with the Ministry of Education to ensure that students, at an early age, get exposure to all things ICT. I know that they've reviewed the curriculum to incorporate Coding, Computer Education and Literacy and are in the process of equipping our schools with all the equipment that they need”.

Meanwhile, the CEO of Huawei Ghana, Tommy Zhou, said the company believes access to education is vital to creating opportunities that support the fair and sustainable development of economies.

This, he said, informed the establishment of Huawei's global CSR flagship programme known as "Huawei Seeds for the Future".

According to Mr Zhou, ICT has become a crucial engine for industry.

Speaking at the 2019 launch, Mr Zhou said the global ICT leader is committed to improving digital regimes to enable organisations and the Ghanaian society to get fully connected to the digital world.
