    The first leg of the 2017 Seeds for the Future program in China kicked off.
    Beijing, 31 July, 2017: The best 10 ICT students, who were selected to join the second phase of the Seeds for the Future program from Tanzania, have started their first leg of their study trip in Beijing, China.

    Apart from having a well designated cultural training that have started this Monday, the Tanzanian’s university students had an opportunity to visit various tourist attractions in the Beijing Capital such as Forbidden City and Great Wall and experience Chinese traditional and cultural things.

    During their trip in Beijing, students also have started their language and cultural training program, the session will be one of its kind designated to help them learn more about Chinese culture and gain cross-cultural work experience in a global business environment.

    Speaking during the tour at the Great Wall of China, one of the students Ms Inviolata Rimisho, student from University of Dodoma (UDOM) said it was a really great experience to climb up the Great Wall. Despite the high temperatures and the large crowd students enjoyed the day.

    She said the Great Wall of China is one of the greatest sights in the world. It’s an ancient defensive architecture in the Chinese kingdom.

    “This historic preservation of a country like the Great Wall tells the story of its past and make the country distinct from other countries. I would like to urge Tanzania to a preserve well the physical reminders of our past because they create a sense of place and a country’s pride. They also provide economic benefit through tourist activities,” she said.

    Historically, the Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood and other materials, generally built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China to protect the Chinese states and empires against the raids and invasions of the various nomadic groups of the Eurasian Steppe.

    Ms Rimisho said through this training opportunity they had received, they will learn more about the culture and experience traditional culture of the Chinese people as well as to get knowledge from the advanced world while they are in Shenzhen at Huawei headquarter.

    Another UDOM student, Mr Anatory Mcharo said “I am one of the participants of the 2017 ‘Seeds for the Future’ program and on my first day I visited the Forbidden City. It was extremely great to visit the Forbidden City, as our tour guide provided us with information on it.

    He said that this city is a China museum of the Imperial Royal Palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties which was built in 1420 AD about 600 years ago, after being home to twenty-four emperors, fourteen of the Ming Dynasty and ten of the Qing Dynasty, the Forbidden City ceased to be the political Centre of China in 1912 and it was declared a world cultural heritage by UNESCO in 1987.
    “It was very interesting to walk through the Forbidden City. It was really crowded but I enjoyed the visit as I saw various building, structures and artifacts of 600 years ago being nicely and clearly visible,” he said.

    Mcharo further said that the preservation of cultural heritage is a challenge in many part of the world but here in china they saw a very unique attitude in preservation the cultural heritage.

    “Despite various challenges the Forbidden City encountered from when it was started to be used as a museum which include Japanese invasion, destruction of the throne in the Harmony hall, the Chinese authority has with greater success preserved this cultural heritage,” he said. 

    Adding “I would like to urge my beloved country Tanzania to impart such an altitude to its authorities in order to preserve our cultural heritage for the benefit of present and future generation.”

    Through the Seeds for the Future program, each year Huawei provide opportunity for Tanzania students to explore all beautiful Chinese palatial architecture and through this it had influence us to encourage our country and the government at large to preserve and develop our cultural and architectural in our nation and elsewhere.

    This year, Huawei had offered 2-week educational experience, language training, exposure to Chinese culture and the experience of processes in Huawei’s dynamic global business environment in China.
