NAIROBI, April 16 (Xinhua) -- Chinese technology firm Huawei launched a program on Tuesday aimed at teaching digital skills to Kenyan students.

Khadija Mohammed Ahmed, the media director at Huawei Kenya's Public Affairs and Communication Department, said that the "Seeds for the Future" program for 2024 is targeting students from the country's leading universities as well as technical vocational education and training institutes.

"The training sessions are designed to bridge the gap between academic learning and real-world industry demands, equipping students with the expertise needed to thrive in the digital age," Ahmed said in a statement released in Nairobi, Kenya's capital.

The initiative, which is Huawei's flagship corporate social responsibility program, is now in its 10th year in Kenya and aims to involve at least 1,000 participants. Ahmed said that the program's goal is to develop local talent, share knowledge, increase awareness of the information communication and technology sector and nurture a digital community.

By collaborating with top Kenyan universities and colleges, Huawei intends to empower students with the necessary tools and insights to drive innovation and shape the future of technology.
