The Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation (MoCD) in partnership with Huawei Ghana has trained 70 female tertiary students selected from some public and private universities.
The training forms part of the Ministry’s efforts to equip females with the requisite knowledge of digital technology and help them develop valuable skills for their future careers.
Speaking at the climax of the programme, the Deputy Minister for Communication and Digitalisation, Ms Ama Pomaa-Boateng, lauded Huawei for its dedication to empowering young people, particularly women, with digital skills and for its ongoing support of the nation’s digital transformation strategy.
She reiterated the government’s commitment to promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education through strategic partnerships with industry leaders like Huawei Ghana
She said the Ministry is committed to establishing a society that is inclusive of all internet users.
To ensure that no one is left behind, young people must be provided with the necessary digital skills to succeed in the twenty-first century.
The Minister added that the government would continue to partner with initiatives like the Huawei Seeds for the Future programme to offer industry-relevant training to our youth.
The Deputy Director of Huawei Ghana, Mr Kweku Essuman Quansah, expressed gratitude to its partners including the Ministry of Information for their support.
The beneficiaries had mentorship sessions with great female personalities from various fields where they had an interactive discussion on their technological career paths, personal lives and social lives.
