’Seeds for the Future 2022 Bangladesh’ inaugurated

“Seeds for the Future 2022, Bangladesh,” a CSR programme by Chinese telecom giant Huawei for aspiring science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and non-STEM students was inaugurated in the capital Sunday.

It aims to inspire ICT talents and help them gather industry-oriented knowledge.

To initiate the programme, roadshows are being arranged at the participating universities this month.

This year Dhaka University, the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology, Islamic University of Technology, Khulna University of Engineering and Technology, Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology, Brac University, East-West University and Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology will take part in Seeds for the Future.

In the next stage, the winners will participate in the global platform along with other successful participants from different countries.

At the inauguration ceremony, Deputy Minister for Education Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury said: “Many technology companies from different countries are doing business in Bangladesh. But very few have come out from that business domain and assisted our youngsters, our next generation to be skilled. So, I want to thank Huawei.”

Pan Junfeng, CEO of Huawei Technologies Bangladesh, said: “We keep organising different programmes to open up new avenues and platforms for the youth to gather knowledge and develop insights. Seeds for the Future is one such programme where the participants get to know about the industry practices directly from the experts and can put their calibre to the test.”

Launched in Bangladesh in 2014, Seeds for the Future has been nurturing ICT talents since its inception and become popular among academics as well as students.
