Launched in Egypt in 2015, “Seeds for The Future” program was aimed at upskilling youth in ICT as well as sharing knowledge and culture nationally, regionally, and internationally. It also aimed at raising awareness regarding the technology sector, honing the interest of young technology specialists to shape future development by using modern technologies.
 
The program is within the framework of empowering youth by upskilling them, building their digital capabilities, and qualifying them for fulfilling the requirements of the labor market. This is in addition to promoting innovation and future thinking methodology among young people, in line with Egypt’s Vision 2030.
 
Huawei provided participating youth with practical training materials in AI, cloud computing, IoT, cybersecurity, and Fifth Generation (5G) technology. This is in addition to providing programs to foster self-development and leadership skills to empower youth to face challenges, by enhancing teamwork among students of different countries, as well as promoting cultural and knowledge exchange activities, including getting acquainted with Chinese culture and arts.
